I downloaded kura as tarball, because on Debian derive I use rpm's are not
accepted (I don't know why). If you read the requirements file, you'll
notice that you first need PyQt and SIP by First
you must try to install SIP, then PyQt and then Kura. I got stuck at
installing SIP, because the Python.h was not found... and when I installed
something else went wrong because Python was installed into another folder
that SIP wants it... If you manage to install everything from the tarball,
could you please! write me how you did this? My experiences with Linux are
very very small!
