  1. 12 Nvu
  2. 13 Inventory (IV)

12 Nvu

Nvu isn't available neither in the official Debian repositories nor from Automatix, but fortunately backports.org has an Nvu package for Etch which can be found on http://backports.org/debian/pool/main/n/nvu/. Go to that address with your browser and download the latest Nvu package, e.g. nvu_1.0final-0bpo1_i386.deb, to your desktop:

Afterwards, right-click that package and select Open with "GDebi Package Installer":

A Package Installer window comes up. Click on the Install Package button to install Nvu:

Afterwards, you can close the Package Installer window:

After the successful installation, you can move the Nvu .deb package to the trash bin:
