    Wow, just watched the video for this. This looks really good. – Graeme Mar 27 '14 at 17:52

    @FaheemMitha, I think the problem the OP has is that there are no installation instructions at all, therefore he doesn't know where to start. – Graeme Mar 27 '14 at 17:53

    GitHub for LightTable is here - github.com/LightTable/LightTable – Graeme Mar 27 '14 at 18:25

    Definitely don't do the above. The run script creates the libudev link in the local directory. What you need is a version of libc that is compatible with the binary or you need to compile the binary with the one you have. – Graeme Mar 27 '14 at 18:50

    The ltbin binary. There are compilation instructions on the github page. – Graeme Mar 27 '14 at 22:13

The issue is in node-webkit


from: https://github.com/LightTable/LightTable/issues/972

The quickest way I found to run LightTable on Debian:

  • Copy the download link from LightTable site

  • Paste the link in a browser (or wget) changing the version from 0.6.0 to 0.5.9 (.../bins/0.5.9/LightTableLinux64.tar.gz)

The previous version does not throw the dependency problem.

I solved the issue updating libc with the packages of sid (experimental branch).

Here's the link to the thread that explain how to update Debian Wheezy to glib2.15


I'm running Light Table 0.7.2 on debian wheezy with no problems now.
