You can develop for Isis in Ubuntu 14.04, it's not Isis, but you don't need Isis, you need to use some libraries. These libraries are a lot easier to install if you use Ubuntu 14.04, because I don't know if there are any usable Isis builds or if the scripts are working, the last time I tried, it didn't work.
So, install Ubuntu 14.04 and the elementary daily ppa, then you will need a newer version of Gtk. I recomend you to download and manually install the packages from here (instead adding the ppa): https://launchpad.net/~ricotz/+archive/testing/+packages only install what you need, be careful because you can break your system. 2014-04-08 23:33 GMT-04:00 Mark Raymond Jr. <markrt...@gmail.com>: > I'm trying to work on a Switchboard plug, but after grabbing the branch for > a sample plug from Launchpad, it seems that I require Switchboard 2.0. > According to the blog post by the core developers, it only exists in Isis. > So how am I supposed to develop anything for Isis with without being able to > use it?
