Re: How do I install modules on Ubunbu 8.10?
All of the modules available on this site are available through the module manager inside the program, from the remote source CrossWire. Please use the module manager to install these modules. If you can't for whatever reason, please send a message to gnomesword-users@lists.sourceforge.net asking how to install a zipped module.


I'm afraid I don't agree with Matthew, and think that zipped modules are a reasonably important distribution mechanism for all sorts of purposes. Basically, they contain the module contents zipped up, and should be unzipped into the right location. For most purposes, this will be ~/.sword (NB: this will require that you downloaded raw zips - if you didn't, module manager will probably be easier).


mkdir -p ~/.sword
unzip -d ~/.sword <zip file>

should work (create ~/.sword if it doesn't exist, then unzip the module into the ~/.sword directory).
