Installing TraMineR stable version on Linux and Unix

To install or update to the latest stable version of TraMineR just type in the R console:
You will be asked to choose a mirror near you. 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 Ubuntu Linux, the r-base-dev package provides the necessary tools. To install 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
