It's easy as pie to install from the tarball.

It's basic functions only require three packages, which it lists on its
install page; the other packages are optional. All of them are also
installable from the repository, so it shouldn't be difficult at all to get
working. When you run the ./install, its even graphical and tells you
precisely what you need to get it working. It's far and away the easiest
package I've ever installed outside the repositories--there's no reason to
be too worried about.

I'm glad to see that it's include for Fiesty, though.

"The point is to make Linux the best OS that the community is capable of
making. Not for other people: For itself. The oh-so-common threats of 'Linux
will never take over the desktop unless it does such-and-such' are simply
irrelevant: The Linux community isn't trying to take over the desktop. They
really don't care if it gets good enough to make it onto your desktop, so
long as it stays good enough to remain on theirs. The highly-vocal
MS-haters, pro-Linux zealots, and money-making FOSS purveyors might be loud,
but they're still minorities." Dominic Humphries,
