How to install Nvu, the Web Authoring System

Prerequisites: add universe and multiverse repositories.

Open a terminal window and type in:
sudo apt-get install nvu
sudo rm -f /usr/share/applications/nvu.desktop
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nvu.desktop

Insert the following lines into the new file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Nvu
Comment=Web Development Editor
Exec=nvu
Icon=nvu.xpm
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;Network;

Refresh the GNOME panel with the following command:

killall gnome-panel

After that you can find Nvu in the Gnome menu under Applications -> Internet.

Nvu not in Applications->Internet

Hi, I got a problem with calling up Nvu.I installed it with sudo apt-get install as suggested by Mike and I followed his instructions as to the wording of the nvu.desktop file. The installation proceeded without any error messages. I also gave the "killall gnome-panel" command. I restarted the Ubuntu OS but Nvu cannot be found in Applications->Internet (or any place else for that matter).On my computer there are two places where the nvu.desktop file appears:1. in /usr/share/applications and 2. in  /usr/share/app-install/desktop.I made sure that both files have exactly the same wording, but I wonder whether there is now one too many - and the question is which one of the two. It appears that the install program put a nvu.desktop file (with somewhat different wording) into the /usr/share/app-install/desktop directory. Any suggestions where to go from here?Thank you very much!Ulrich

Thanks for the how-to, but...

Thanks for the how-to, but NVu doesn't show up on my applications menu. I am able to start it by typing /usr/share/applications/nvu at the terminal window, but I would love to have an icon, too. Thanks for any additional help you can offer.
