Official Apt Repository

After a significant break from using our official repository, due to Adam Sutton no longer being actively involved, this has finally be restored. With some slight alterations. There will still be 3 repositories, however the meanings has changed:

Support Distro's / Platforms

  • Ubuntu
    • Precise (12.04) - i386 / amd64
    • Trusty (14.04) - i386 / amd64
    • Vivid (15.04) - i386 / amd64
    • Wily (15.10) - i386 / amd64
  • Debian
    • Wheezy - i386 / amd64
    • Jessie - i386 / amd64
  • Raspbian
    • Wheezy - armhf
    • Jessie - armhf

Note: it's the intention to include Sid as well, unfortunately there have been some hiccups getting this working.


If you require builds that are not currently supported see


Before you can use the repositories you probably want to import the GPG signing key:

curl | sudo apt-key add -

You will then need to add which ever repository you feel is most appropriate, for example if you want to be cautious and have a reliable system:

sudo apt-add-repository
sudo apt-get update

Note: if you install more than one repository you will only ever get packages from the one holding the most recent version number, so the order of priority would be:

unstable > stable > release

You can easily remove a repository though, so should you suddenly come over all crazy and want to live on the edge:

sudo apt-add-repository -r
sudo apt-add-repository
sudo apt-get update
