Installing IO Language on Ubuntu 11.04

September 8, 2011

Here's my documentation for how I installed the Io language onto an Ubuntu Box.

Download & Install

Install the following build tools:

sudo apt-get install cmake

Download the latest Io language source from and unzip it.

Go into the directory where you unzipped it and run:

$ mkdir build && cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make
$ sudo make install

Edit /etc/ to add /usr/local/lib to the bottom of the file. Mine now looks like this:

include /etc/*.conf

Run sudo ldconfig to reload

$ sudo ldconfig

You should now be able to start the Io interpreter using io
