I'm using Gutsy and managed to install rkward. It does have some dependencies 
which need some upgrades, but it wasn't such a hassle.

The only package it really complained was libgfortran, but I found this fix on 
the Internet:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgfortran.so.2 /usr/lib/libgfortran.so

After that, it worked like a charm and must say I'm pretty impressed. It they 
keep developing it like that, I might actually switch (for the moment I use 
the good old jEdit).

Hope it helps,
