celtx : Debian Installation

Interesting find, I was looking for some advices on how to write movie/comics script and then one thing leading to another I found Celtx

Celtx is a (brilliant) script editor or as they call it a "all-in-one media pre-production software" see the overview on Celtx website. Basically it make the whole writing process a lot easier since it will pre-format most of it for you (I especially like the creation of characters) - you just have to write and develop your ideas, the rest is done by Celtx - and when you're ready to publish you can export to html or pdf ...

The application is offered for Windows, Mac and Linux (kudos !)

Unfortunately there's no Debian package ready so it has to be done the old fashion way (uncompressed it and deploy) - but it's not too hard.

In only 4 steps :
  1. get the tar.bz2 (18MB) file here
  2. once it's on your desktop uncompress it
  3. then move it in your /usr/local/bin directory (using sudo mv or your favorite file browser running as root)
  4. then create an icon or link to "/usr/local/bin/celtx/celtx" which is the executable script
and there you go ready to write your first script.
