Osmo depends on libxml2 and libgtk2.0 (version >= 2.. Ubuntu's Gutsy repos satisfy those dependencies, but chances are you won't have the -dev packages installed for compiling. Just to make sure we use the terminal to
sudo aptitude install build-essential libxml2 libxml2-dev libgtk2.0-dev gettext
download osmo using the following command
Now you need to extract the osmo-0.1.2.tar.gz file using the following command
tar xvf osmo-0.1.2.tar.gz
it shouldn't throw around any errors, if all went well until now. And then run the following commands
sudo make install
This will complete the installation.
If you want to open the osmo you need to enter the following command in your terminal
Once it opens you should see similar to the following screen this is calender option

I am getting the error :
configure : error : c compiler cannot create executables.
I am using Ubuntu 8.4.0
Please help how to resolve this.
In Ubuntu 9.10 you no longer need to do this – All you have to do is the sudo command- “sudo apt-get install osmo”
I have recently started using mt and I having some difficulties here? in your blog you stated that we need to enable write permissions on the App_Data folder…unfortunately I don’t understand how to enable it?
Some time ago I installed Osmo onto a notebook computer running Linux Mint. Then I tried importing a csv file from Filemaker with 700 odd client entries … it did not work.
Recently I tried again with Linux Lite … it did not work either.
This is a major problem for me because the only significant barrier to making more use of a Linux system is the lack of a working PIM/Database where I can easily import the records from my Windows based Filemaker.
How do I switch to week view, day view, etc, or is this possible? I only see month view.
