View Full Version : [ubuntu] problem updating comix

March 17th, 2009, 12:23 AM
I have Ubuntu 8.04.

I installed comix using "sudo apt-get install comix" and it installed the earliest version. I want the latest version.

I downloaded a file from the comix site that if this were windows i would assume was an installer - just opens like a folder when i click it. The file is called "comix-4.0.3.tar.gz". 4.0.3 is the version i want.

Can someone please explain in simple terms (the only thing i know about anything is that "apt-get" can download things for you, i'm a total noob) how on earth i update to the newest version?

Thank you for your help and patience, i am very new.

Remove the old version from your machine first either with add/remove or synaptic. Then, download the .deb to your desktop and double-click it to install it. No need to download the source and build it yourself.
