Please check first if the latest Netactview version is not already included in your Linux distribution.
In order to install on Ubuntu you may 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 opening the .deb package should start the package installer.
If the default package installer does not work use Gdebi to install the package.
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
