I have created a virtual machine for virtualbox for the participants of my training session Interactive experiments in sound synthesis with Nsound, numpy and matplotlib at EuroPython 2014 in Berlin. It provides a ready to run Manjaro Linux System with an XFCE desktop and all the software necessary to follow the course.
Update (2014-07-22): if you already are at EuroPython and downloading the virtual machine appliance is too slow, please contact me via email (see below) or on Twitter (@TheUnifaun) and we’ll meet and I’ll transfer the file to you via USB stick or SD card.
Here are the instructions on how to get your environment for the training session up and running. These instructions should work regardless of whether you use Windows, OS X or Linux:
