OK, downloaded the source and I have the same trouble.
That is not nice :-( Maybe I am missing something but it
just don't won't spit a Makefile.
So the next step is get an rpm of a somewhat modern
rpm-based distro and transform it to a deb.
This is a last resource option and should never be used
for an important package.
sudo apt-get install alien
then download :
Now in a console go to the folder where you have
put the rpm.
alien -i gruler-0.6-1.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm
this will make a deb from the rpm and install it in
Please read "man alien"; at least the first 2 paragraphs so you
understand fully what you are doing. For packages like this,
it is quite safe. You can remove it with synaptic or apt.
Some packages will not run or install using this method though.
gruler worked ok here; install, run, remove.
I am running breezy.
