Please check first if the latest Netactview version is not already included in your Linux distribution.
In order to install on Ubuntu you can download one of the .deb packages.
On other Linux distributions you will probably have to download and compile the sources.

Installing from the .deb package
In the standard Ubuntu distribution and other distributions based on Gnome opening the .deb package should
start the Gdebi package installer. Gdebi will install the package and all its dependencies.
In KDE based distributions, like Kubuntu, you will have to install Gdebi and open the package with it.
Installing from sources
In order to compile the sources you will need:
Compilation tools: gcc, make
Other tools: gettext, perl xml parser, intltool
Libraries (development packages): gtk+-2 (at least 2.8), libglade-2, gnome-vfs-2 (at least 2.4), glib-2 (at least 2.8), libgnome-2, gconf-2, libgtop-2 (at least 2.12)
On Ubuntu the needed packages are: gcc, make, gettext, libxml-parser-perl, intltool, libgnome2-dev, libgtk2.0-dev, libglade2-dev, libgconf2-dev, libgtop2-dev
Once you have the prerequisites run from the sources directory:
make install #Run as root. On Ubuntu: sudo make install
