Installing Perl Padre IDE Into Ubuntu 12.04 Precise

Running cpan Padre was giving me all sorts of troubles.
I had to follow the advice in this blog post when I got the error message Undefined subroutine &ExtUtils::ParseXS::errors – which was to apt-get install libwx-perl and edit /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.12.4/ExtUtils/xsubpp and change the errors() call to report_error_count() (as specified in this forum post).
Padre kept failing to install when it couldn’t pass tests depending on Debug::Client. To install that I had to install some dependent libraries:
apt-get install libncurses5-dev
apt-get install libreadline-dev
