Getting Perl-Tk installed on Hardy with Anti-Aliased Fonts

First, make sure you turn off compiz - when I had it turned on it lead to all sort of weird errors and freeze-ups.

Then I downloaded the package from: [WWW] http://search.cpan.org/dist/Tk/

Using Synaptic I installed: libperl-dev, libx11-dev, x-dev,and libxft-dev

Then, using the command line:

  • tar xvfz Tk-*

    cd Tk-*

    perl Makefile.PL XFT=1

    make

    make test

    sudo make install
