From Artha

Jump to: navigation, search



The latest stable release of Artha is 1.0.3 (Release Notes and Change Log). Click on either of links below to download.



Refer Installation for help on how to build and install Artha.



Download artha_1.0.3.0.exe ~ 12.1 MiB.

The installation requires Windows XP or later (32/64-bit) and a free space of 49.8 MiB.


Debian & family

If you are using Debian or its derivatives like Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc. then Artha is already available in the repositories. You can install it by:

  $ sudo apt-get install artha

Both Debian and Ubuntu has the version 1.0.2 of Artha in their respective repositories; so by installing using the above command, you'll not get the latest 1.0.3 release. Hence if you prefer to have the latest version, there are two options available ~ PPA and direct .deb download.


Artha now has a PPA in launchpad. This can be added to your system's repository sources through

  $ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:legends2k/artha

This will prompt you to accept adding the PPA's keys to your system. Accept it by pressing RETURN. Once this is done, update the package data and install Artha.

  $ sudo apt-get update
  $ sudo apt-get install artha

Alternatively, you can also download the deb file below for your architecture and install the same (instructions below). This is more of a manual method and the PPA method is encouraged over this one, since this method lacks automatic updation of the package, should there be a newer version of Artha.

Architecture Binary
i386 artha_1.0.3-1_i386.deb
AMD64 artha_1.0.3-1_amd64.deb

NOTE: Please use gdebi to install this deb package. Do not use dpkg, since it does not have the ability to automatically resolve dependencies and will lead to broken dependencies. Should you end up in broken dependencies give sudo apt-get install -f to resolve it; apt will take care of fixing it. On most Debian based distros, gdebi-gtk (GUI front end of gdebi) comes pre-installed. If you have it installed, you can simply double click the downloaded .deb file and gdebi will show you a graphical interface to install Artha. Follow the instructions and it will install Artha resolving dependencies. If you go by the CLI way:

  $ sudo gdebi artha_1.0.3-1_i386.deb

Make sure the Universe repositories are enabled in your repositories list for gdebi will look for WordNet which is available only in the Universe.

Fedora & friends

Fedora (Leonidas/11 or above) has version 1.0.2 in it's repository right now. This can be installed in Fedora/Redhat thus:

  # yum install artha


For other (Linux) distros, binaries do not exist right now. Please download the source and build it. See Installation page for details on how to build and install Artha from source.
