Here is how to compile and install lunch for any operating system.
It uses ssh, xterm and the multiprocessing and subprocess python modules. Python2.4 or later is needed for subprocess.
sudo apt-get install openssh-client openssh-server python-setuptools mercurial
sudo easy_install --prefix=/usr/local multiprocessing
(there might be a python-multiprocessing package if you use a newer Ubuntu or Debian) We will drop multiprocessing in version 0.2.
Installing it the low-level way¶
Checkout the latest version from the repository.
mkdir -p ~/src cd ~/src hg clone https://svn.sat.qc.ca/hg/lunch cd lunch
Install lunch to /usr/local/bin/lunch on both local and remote hosts. (type your password)
sudo make install
There should be a Lunch icon in the Application/Other Gnome menu.
