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/ /usr/lib/

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,
