    Smile Ubuntu 12.04 There isn’t a software package called “qgis” in your current software so

    I don`t ask how i can install, for sure that i will find on qgis.org a precompiled pack for ubuntu 11.10 and it will run, i hope.

    I ask what can i do to make the package exists for ubuntu 12.04 ?

    Where can i read more about the process of a package being introduced into Ubuntu Software Center, so that i find a broken or not compiled package, to know what to do

    Well I know you were very clear on what you're asking and what you're not, but in order to answer your question I may have to address both.

    The QGIS repositorios are not included in the 12.04 versión of Ubuntu. Don't ask me why because I have no idea. But there is a way to add them and install QGIS. In regars of where to find info of software introduction to Ubuntu Software Center I'm not really helpfull.

    This is how I installed QGIS step by step. Here you will find how to make it available for yourself. I'm trying to keep this as easier as possible for newbies so you might gonna find many annoying comments or lines that could sound obvious for some expertise levels.

    All keys and repositories are the QGIS official ones. You can corroborate here: http://hub.qgis.org/projects/quantum...ownload#Master

    1. Open "Synaptic Package manager" or "Ubuntu Software Center" and add the repositories as follows:

    In "Synaptic Package manager" the path is: Settings-Repositories-Other Software-Add.
    In "Ubuntu Software Center" the path is: Edit-Software sources-Other Software-Add.

    Once there, enter each one of the lines below at a time.

    deb http://qgis.org/ubuntugis-nightly precise main
    deb-src http://qgis.org/ubuntugis-nightly precise main
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/u...nstable/ubuntu precise main

    2. Now we need to add the public keys of QGIS as follow:

    Open a terminal and type:

    gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 1F9ADD375CA44993 089EBE08314DF160
    Hit enter or return (wherever you call it, for me is the same). It may ask for your password, just type it in and hit enter again. Now add the next line.
    gpg --export --armor 1F9ADD375CA44993 089EBE08314DF160 | sudo apt-key add -
    Once again hit enter. Now type:
    sudo get-apt update
    Hit enter for the last time and close the terminal.

    Now go the Ubuntu Software center or Synaptic Package Manager and install as usual. I would recomend to use Synaptic since it has been more realiable in my experience. Not only for QGIS but any software related issue.

    Notes:

    A) By doing it this way you will use the nightly build but you can as well use the regular package. The repositories would be:

    deb http://qgis.org/debian precise main
    deb-src http://qgis.org/debian precise main

    B) This is for the Precise distro. If you're running a differente one, just check the web page for the right repositorie (or just change "Precise" for whatever you distro is).

    Regards.

    Dear Daniel,

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I followed all the steps (except that I entered the repositories from Note A instead of the ones listed in Step 1) but things didn't work as expected. When I typed sudo get-apt update I got a message "sudo: get-apt: command not found".

    I tried to reload (which could another way to do the "update") Synaptic but it gave the following error message: W: GPG error: http://qgis.org precise Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY EBB1B7ED997D3880

    Do you have any idea why I couldn't finish the installation? Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks in advance for your (or anyone else's) attention.

    The correct command is apt-get, not the other way round.

    You can install the public key with
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys EBB1B7ED997D3880

    Well oldos2er already answer but in the QGIS web page you can find any aditional info. Regarding the key error just do what oldos2r suggested or type the following sentences on terminal to add the qgis repository public key to your at keyring:



    gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 997D3880
    gpg --export --armor 997D3880 | sudo apt-key add

    It shuld be working just fine. If something comes up I'll try to reply faster.
