[clam-devel] clam under ubuntu 10.10

I have wanted to try CLAM for many years, and at one time even got an early
version of SMS running under windows, but then had no luck after that.   I
have since switched to ubuntu (10.10) and decided to try CLAM again, but
have had little luck in getting anything running.  I compiled the main
library successfully I think, but the instructions are not clear for:

   - compiling the other elements from source,
   - or for how to install plugins, or
   - how to start a program once it is installed successfully.
   - The compile instructions are not clear as to what needs to be run under
   - Chordata has no instructions I can find at all.
   - I tried to install via the .debs, but I get an unstrusted source
   error, and I cannot find a software key anywhere on the site, so the debs
   not work.Plus they are listed as working on prior versions but not 10.10.

I was hoping getting CLAM running under linux would be smoother than
I realize this is stuff that is obvious to you guys, but I have been unable
to figure any of it out for myself.  If you help me get things running under
ubuntu, I'd be glad to compile (in the textual rather than coding sense!)
the instructions into a basic HOWTO for how to get up and running on that
platform.  It would be great if there were a software key allowing install
of the .debs..

I think I successfully compiled annotator and network editor from source
using the defaults (annotator I did not compile under sudo, the editor I
did, so I am not sure if that is correct) but I cannot find anything to
execute to load any interface.

Can you help me get things running?  I'd really like to try the programs
again under linux.
