This page tries to document the process of installing Paperbox from source. Being written by its developer, it is not complete, so please write up your questions on the bottom of the page, or just edit and improve it. The Login page allows you to register on this wiki.
Installing Paperbox from source is really easy:
tar -xzvf paperbox-0.3.1.tar.gz cd paperbox-0.3.1 ./configure make sudo make install
...if you have all the development libraries that is.
The "tricky" part might be gtkmm-utils. Download the latest release. If you want to build the latest Paperbox from SVN, you will need to git clone the latest gtkmm-utils too. Then do the same ./configure, make and sudo make install.
Other libraries that you will need are (I will write the names of Ubuntu packages):
libboost-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev libglademm-2.4-dev libgnomeui-dev libgoocanvas-dev libtrackerclient-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev
Of cource you need to have Tracker running as well.
