Atelier B 4.1 has just been released. For Linux machines, it is available as a binary packages for 32 bits x86 machines in RPM and DEB format. Unfortunately the DEB package won't work on a Debian-like 64 bits machine, for example an Ubuntu. Here the approach have I used to install the package:

Install Atelier B 4.1 in /opt/atelierb-4.1

  • mkdir /tmp/ab
  • cd /tmp/ab
  • wget
  • ar xv AtelierB-4.1.0-free-linux.deb
  • cd /
  • sudo tar zxf /tmp/ab/data.tar.gz
  • sudo chown -R YourUserID:YourGroup /opt/atelierb-4.1/ # substitute YourUserID and YourGroup with adequate values

Configure the execution environment on an Ubuntu 12.04

  • sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch

You can now start Atelier B with:

 /opt/atelierb-4.1/startAB &

The procedure might be different for another Debian-like distribution, including Debian itself. You can add specific procedures for a given distribution in the comments.
