Dear list,

I am trying to install grapefruit on Kubuntu 14.04. Most of the
dependencies seemed to install without incident, but I am running into the
following error:

  jeff at jeff-Lenovo:~$ cabal install grapefruit-ui-gtk grapefruit-examples
  Resolving dependencies...
  Configuring grapefruit-ui-
  Building grapefruit-ui-
  Preprocessing library grapefruit-ui-
  src/Internal/UIItem.hs-boot:12:2: lexical error at character 'i'
  Failed to install grapefruit-ui-
  cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
  grapefruit-examples- depends on grapefruit-ui- which failed
  grapefruit-ui- failed during the building phase. The exception was:
  ExitFailure 1
  grapefruit-ui-gtk- depends on grapefruit-ui- which failed to
  jeff at jeff-Lenovo:~$

I wanted to find the offending 'i' character, but the file
"src/Internal/UIItem.hs-boot" I was unable to find anywhere:
  jeff at jeff-Lenovo:/$ pwd
  jeff at jeff-Lenovo:/$ sudo find . -name *UIItem.hs*
  [sudo] password for jeff:
  jeff at jeff-Lenovo:/$

Any ideas?
