uDig 1.3.1

uDig 1.3.1 was released a few days before the holidays, but I’m just now getting around to installing it.  The AUR pgkbuild for uDig is stuck at 1.1.1, but that’s not a big problem because uDig’s a java / eclipse based program.  To install 1.3.1 on 64 bit Arch:

Download the installer linked here

cd to the directory where the installer zip was downloaded

Unzip the installer with the following command:

sudo unzip -d /opt/

Make a symlink in /usr/bin that points to the shell script that launches uDig:

sudo ln -s /opt/udig/ /usr/bin/local/udig

And you’re good to go (assuming /usr/local/bin is in your path).  When the next version comes out you can simply sudo rm -rf /opt/udig and replace it with the new version.
