Installing TraMineR development version on Linux and Unix

To install the development version of TraMineR just type in the R console:
install.packages("TraMineR", repos="")
The package will be downloaded from the R-Forge TraMineR repository. Unlike Windows and Mac OS X versions, there are no pre-compiled linux binaries for TraMiner. TraMineR is installed from the source package and compiled on your system. The tools needed for compilation must thus be available on your system. On Ubuntu Linux, the r-base-dev package will install the necessary tools. To do this you can use the Synaptic package manager or open a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install r-base-dev
If the RColorBrewer package is already installed on your computer, you can safely omit the install.packages("RColorBrewer") command. If it is not installed, RColorBrewer may alternatively be available as a distribution package on some Linux systems. On Ubuntu Linux for instance, you can install the r-cran-rcolorbrewer package by using the Synaptic package manager or by opening a terminal and typing:
sudo apt-get install r-cran-rcolorbrewer
