"There are two ways to get pyNeighborhood: downloading it from the software’s Web site, or installing it using a package manager like Synaptic. Obviously, the advantage of installing via a package manager is that it will also install the software that pyNeighborhood depends on. This software is:

"The Python scripting language

  • PyGTK, which enables a graphical user interface for applications written in Python
  • smbclient, which enables your computer to talk to another computer that supports the SMB protocol.
  • smbfs, which enables your computer to access the file system on another computer
However, at the time that this article was written the version of pyNeighborhood in the Synaptic repository is 0.4.0; the version available at the application's Web site is 0.4.1. If (like me) you prefer to have the latest version of the software on your computer, then take the download route."
