This is just to notify the webadmins that the Ubuntu PPA link (found in -
http://getnightingale.com/all-versions.php) is wrong.

The WRONG link is: ppa://trebelnik-stefina/nightingale
The CORRECT working link is: ppa:trebelnik-stefina/nightingale

There are no // in ppa addresses.

Since, as far I know the 1.11.0 .tar.gz files in the download page don't actually work in Ubuntu and 1.11.1-5 package in the PPA does, it would be quite important to fix this.

Moreover, since it's not a link that they will browsing in Firefox but copying and pasting to their Repositories List in Synaptic Package Manager or Ubuntu Software Center, leaving it as a clickable link will only serve to confuse the newbs. With that in mind, may I please suggest the following improvement:


Ubuntu PPA: ppa://trebelnik-stefina/nightingale
Instructions on using the PPA: Use the above link to add Nightingale Repository to your Ubuntu Repository list. If you are unclear on how to do this, please refer to [url= http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/how-to-add-a-...buntu]this tutorial[/url]. Once the repository is added and your package list is refreshed, you will be able to find and install Nightingale in the Ubuntu Software Center or your favorite package manager.
I am still playing around with this. I honestly couldn't find any documentation, on how to link to a packet/repository. Which is pretty sad...

However the plan is to provide a .sh script, doing all the needed steps for you Smile

EDIT: and I like the idea of being able to install Ngale via Ubuntu Software Center afterwards... have to try that one out...
+1 for Shell script.
I uploaded Commit 66e6be27d3553b26bc961ba5c2c38288a0256f5f, did that fix the issue correctly? If so, I'm for closing this thread, or do we need it for the shell script discussion?

Instead of so many links for download, I think it's better to write this on the download page:

Type these commands in terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:trebelnik-stefina/nightingale
sudo apt-get update

and then in terminal type:
sudo apt-get install nightingale
or open Ubuntu software center or synaptic package manager and install Nightingale

This way is better because adding repositories are automatically available updates in the update manager the next time I update launchpad PPA with the new version of Nightingale!
@muzena nice Smile

So I was wondering, we had a Nightingale account on launchpad earlier (before September 2011)
Maybe we should handle the ppa on this account (you will have access to it, no worries)

Then we should differentiate release and dev versions (in your case 1.11.0 is a release, 1.11.1 is currently in dev).

Until we release 1.11.1 officially, I guess we should only ship 1.11.0 unless you want to make a separate "dev" ppa.

You should look on how Mozilla handle this here :

Before about half year I sent e-mail to Nightingale maintainer Stevo to add me to Nightingale team in launchpad to upload Nightigale in PPA but I never get respons from Stevo, then I made my own PPA repository.
Smile
Well stevo was not a lot active, and he left the project since August 2011...
Ok then, can you gave me access to Nightingale PPA repository, then I will make PPA's and upload Nightingale.
Well I sent him a mail to get the ownership, so I'm waiting Wink
