They dropped spidermonkey from Ubuntu with the Lucid release. This broke my jslint script.
Tons of searching revealed that some of the Launchpad folks had done the necessary incantations to make it work. I did:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:launchpad/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install spidermonkey-bin
On the way I found this nice python wrapper for jslint to replace the perl one I had found. Check out jslint-cli.
