# Welcome The Springseed to Fedora 19 !! :)

Hello everyone ;

I just wanna use new note-taking application springseed on fedora but It's only looks like a support Ubuntu system. Well we should do something about that then. :) Let's hack a little bit on it :)

As everyone see we have note-taking app on Fedora 19. That's fine but how can we install app on Fedora 19 ?

Simply we gonna need package "alien" for converting to DEB to RPM for making usefull. That will be easy part of this process but still we hava one problem . Fedora didn't have "libudev.so.0" . But already has that library with just newer and different name.

 I have x64 system so I have go "/lib64" but If you have 32 bit system you can just go "/lib" and add soft link of "libudev.so.1.3.5" to "libudev.so.0" . Normally If you try to install package It will ask that package but we don't have that package in that name and have newer version. So we can't relies on 3rd part package or something like that. So we can just create soft link as a root and done .

ln -s libudev.so.1.3.5 libudev.so.0

Okey that will be easy task.

 Next ; Converting process for DEB package to RPM but we can also do directly extract to DEB package to our any folder. Then we did that. we gonna have "/opt/" and "/usr" folders. We gonna have to just copy the files and done. It will open and working note-taking app in Fedora 19 :)

RPM to DEB way ; 

alien --to-rpm --scripts springseed_1.0.2_amd64.deb
rpm2cpio springseed-1.0.2-2.x86_64.rpm | cpio -idmv
cp -r opt/ /
cp -r usr/ /

Extract DEB way ; 

dpkg-deb -x springseed_1.0.2_amd64.deb [DESTINATION PATH/DESTINATION FOLDER]
cp -r opt/ /
cp -r /usr /
