Ubuntu: Picviz 0.5 Installation

I first learned about Picviz in and know more about it during Honeynet 2009 Annual Meeting in Malaysia when the Picviz author - Toady presented his stuffs. Anyway here's the straightforward Picviz version 0.5 installation guide on Ubuntu Linux -

shell>apt-get install \
cmake python-all-dev python-qt4 libevent-dev libpcre3-dev libcairo2-dev

Make sure you install cmake 2.6, if you are still using Ubuntu 8.04 - Hardy, you need to get this one instead -

Download picviz-0.5 -

shell>wget \

shell>tar xvzf picviz-0.5.tar.gz

shell>cd picviz-0.5


shell>sudo make install

If you want to install it on your prefferable directory, you can do this before make -

shell>cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/stow/picviz-0.5.0

Build python binding -

shell>cd src/libpicviz/bindings/python/

shell>sudo python ./ install

Build gui frontend -

shell>cd src/frontend

shell>sudo python ./ install

To launch the python gui -
