How to install Rumine

Rumine is made by a single Perl script. You can launch it everywhere you want.
There will be no problems, if you already have all what is needed: rar, dcop, one between Amarok or Kaffeine and all the required Perl modules. You should have Perl already installed on your distro.

Before launching rumine you should launch that checks if the needed perl modules and the needed executables are already present on your machine.
Moreover it copies the Rumine's icons in the right place.

You can get the needed modules, not yet installed, from CPAN and to install them by your own.
You can do this in two ways:

The required modules are: Here is an example of how to install a Perl module.
The most comfortable way is to let the CPAN shell to make the work for you through the command:
$ perl -MCPAN -e 'install Module::Name'

or entering in the shell CPAN digiting:
$ perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> install Module::Name

Using both the previous methods, if the module that is going to be installed needs some dependencies, the CPAN shell will work for you.
If you want to have all under your control and you want to build the module from sources, these are the commands to digit for each module. But in this case it's to you to supply all the modules required to resolve the dependencies.
$ tar xvzf Module-Name-x.xx.tar.gz
$ cd Module-Name-x.xx
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make test
$ make install
