IDE v.999 install on LINUX Debian
A friend wants to install Pinguino v.999 on a Linux Debian PC which has no working internet connection.

Extracting the ......tar.lzma IDE file works fine and results in a folder named x.4

However, the problem is what to do next to install it and get it working ?

I do not recommend to use that version which is far outdated.
Instead, go to Sourceforge and download :

1- the compilers you want for your system (Linux 32- or Linux 64-bit).
2- the testing version of the Pinguino IDE and the Pinguino libraries in the testing folder
3- extract the compilers archives in /opt/pinguino.
4- install the Pinguino IDE deb packages with one of these tools : 

sudo dpkg -i package.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo gdebi package.deb
If you don't have gdebi : sudo apt-get install gdebi-core

Note that Pinguino has some dependencies. You might have to install :
    sudo apt-get install python-pip python-pyside
    sudo apt-get install qt4-default qt4-qmake cmake
    sudo python -m pip install --upgrade pip pyusb wheel beautifulsoup4 setuptools requests
I know it can be difficult without a working internet connection ...

If everything is fine, you'll just have to launch the Pinguino IDE from /opt/pinguino/v12 with :
It is easier to complain than it is to do, but it is better to do than it is to complain.

Thanks a lot Regis for your explicit answer.

We will give it a try.
After all, Linux is not the most user friendly operating system for us who are very new to it.

Unfortunately, too many strange faults and ununderstandable comments coming up when extracting/installing.This is by far too complicated.
We have given up the whole thing !
