How to update client version?

I tried installing the gtk-Gnutella client from the Ubuntu Software Center but apparently it's an old client version: 1.0.1-1. How do I update?

I found a "gtk-gnutella-1.1.8.tar.bz2" compressed file and don't know what do with it. Does it mean it has to be recompiled or something? Is there another way to do this? Right now I'm running gtk-Gnutella.exe using Wine which is kinda unstable and slow.

What version of Ubuntu are you using? trusty?

The file you downloaded is a source file for compiling.

If you wanna try building it extract the folder somewhere.

Enter the directory and read the file README.Debian

The package names might be a little different for Ubuntu.

Just install Synaptic Package Manager and use the search option if you have to, synaptic can install the packages forgoing the apt-get install method.

The rest of the directions should work.

If it doesn't work thats still okay. It just means that the Debian rules don't apply to Ubuntu anymore.


make clean

You should then be able to run the program without installing by executing the file gtk-gnutella that can be found in the "src" directory found in the folder you just did everything else in.
