This is tested on Ubuntu 11.10/64 bit.

First checkout the source from the trunk.

If you are a committer,


For others,

svn co abiword

Change to the abiword directory, and execute the below commands.

sudo apt-get build-dep abiword
sudo apt-get install gtk+-3.0
sudo apt-get install librdf0-dev
sudo apt-get install valgrind 
sudo make install
cd /lib

Now from the lib directory,

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/

Now you should be able to run abiword by typing abiword in the terminal.
