    QGIS: Install on Jaunty?

    Can someone help me to install QGIS on jaunty. I have tried a few pathways that are shown around the web, but I am not sure that they were meant for jaunty. For whatever reason, it is still not installed on my computer.

    I am totally a novice in dealing with the terminal, (recent windows convert), so please be very explicit in your instructions. Thank you very much.

    Re: QGIS: Install on Jaunty?

    Hey! I did it, only with the help of Ubuntu forums and the awesome people helping here. Thanks so much to badaveil, ajgreeny, and technophobia.

    I'll try to tell you what I did.

    First Go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources

    (enter your password)

    "Third Party Software" Tab

    Click "+Add"

    When it prompts you for a APT Line, enter:

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/qgis/ubuntu/ jaunty main

    click on "Add Source"
    Then click "Reload" to update

    At this point I got a "NO PUBKEY" error, but not to worry, because we have added the source.

    Now, open your terminal type the following:

    Code:
    ~$ gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    (A window should open, and you should see your newly added source, http://ppa.launchpad.net/qgis/ubuntu/)

    close that window with the x in the corner

    then type into the terminal:
    Code:
    ~$ sudo apt-get install qgis
    (it should install)

    if it doesn't then try this:
    Code:
    ~$ sudo apt-get update
    that will do some stuff then try this again:
    Code:
    ~$ sudo apt-get install qgis



    then:
    Code:
    ~$ qgis
    And walla! It should open. Or you can find it automatically added to programs:

    Applications -> Education -> Quantum GIS



    This whole community of open-sources is awesome. I feel like I just kicked microsoft in the balls, and it feels good.

    I have an amendment to that previous post.

    After having QGIS for a week, I realized I had the unstable version.

    So, in that first step, when loading a APT line, load this instead (stable):

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/qgis/stable/ubuntu/ jaunty main


    otherwise follow the directions, and you should have it.

    Peace
    C
