View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to get newest version

April 6th, 2013, 01:36 PM
There are a few programs I use whose latest version is much newer than the actual version I get im my sources.list. For example ocrodjvu is now up to 0.7.14, but the one I get from quantal (or raring) is 0.7.9. Is there any way to get automatically the latest version without installing it by hand every time?

Nope, Im not finding one.

You could automate the download/configure/make/make-install process.

Or you could try to find or create a PPA for ocrodjvu, and then add that PPA to your repositories

No ppa package

ok, thanks. To make my own ppa, I just don't feel familiar/confident enough yet with making packages for Ubuntu...
