Hello,

I just switched over from OpenSUSE to Ubuntu 12.10.  I thought it might be helpful for others to post this…

I had to first install gfortran before installing ffnet

$ sudo apt-get install gfortran

Then, installed setuptools by downloading the appropriate .egg file from (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools#downloads)

$ cd ~/Downloads
$ sudo sh setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg

Then installed ffnet using easy_install command

$ sudo easy_install ffnet

Now ffnet is installed and functional.  Without installing gfortran first, compiling the ffnet software failed because Ubuntu was unable to find the proper fortran compiler.
