I installed it with no problem onto Ubuntu and Xubuntu - the issue is
that it comes with an old image so to do what Richard did and not to
have to make it all from scratch you can do the following:
Install the synaptic package which installs the 3.8 image as well.
I ran it once and it places the image in ~/squeak - on your home folder.
I then downloaded the image I wanted from the squeak website - this is
the image NOT the whole virtual machine etc.
This is held at:
So you can even wget if you want.
I then expanded it and moved the following all the files bar
the .DC_Store (stuff for Macs) folder in the ~/squeak folder.
When I loaded squeak again I got the option of 3.9 and 3.8xxx.
It is easier than you might have thought.
