sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dolik-rce/upp-nightly

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install upp

Then click on /usr/share/upp/uppsrc/ide/TheIDE to bring up the config box to finish the setup and run.

What do you mean? This commmand would install TheIDE, and nothing else. That might be what you want, e.g. in case when you use U++ sources from svn. But many people prefer to use U++ sources from the upp package. The upp package depends on theide package, so the command Neil posted above actually installs both TheIDE and U++ sources.

Also, the last step ("click on /usr/share/upp/uppsrc/ide/TheIDE") could be replaced by "find TheIDE in your applications menu" in most desktop environments Smile

Best regards,

If you're interested in my story, here it comes:
The UPP installation I was working with came from UBUNTU Software Center, i.e. the "stable" release. From time to time I experienced crashes of theide and after the third of January, Ctrl + F2 crashed theide reproduceable. So I used the Sofware Centre to uninstall and reinstall UPP. The crash remained. I fetched the debug symbols and spotted the error. I posted a message to the forum for theide, no reply. My next decision was to switch to upp-nightly, made a app-get remove upp added the repository for upp-nightly, made a update and install. The theide comming up after that was the one from the stable release. When asking in the menu for updates available the answer was positive. I got a huge list of modules to change and spent an hour or so to click all to the select option on the right. Finally, Synchronize produced a state that was not usable at all anymore. So I used once more apt-get to remove the UPP package and autoclean. Additionally, I deleted all of the upp sources in my personal space and /usr/share/upp. The same with /usr/bin/theide. Then I tried a new attempt of installation from the upp-nightly repository. The package was downloaded and stored in /usr/share/upp but no theide anymore. Only after 'apt-get install theide' I got my executable back to complete the steps mentioned.
Happy to have a new environment I tried Ctrl+F2 with my app and hey, it worked! But the sad thing was to notice after my first code change, my app didn't compile anymore due to rearrangements in the assemblies. It wasn't this hard to find it. But one question remains: If the "stable" release, that every newcomer tries first, ist obsolete now and moreover is incompatible then why not take it down?

Very seldom do I ever use the applications menu.
Actually I Right click and put a link on the desktop.

Not every newcomer tries the stable release. After some reading in the forum most probably start with the daily builds.
The stable release is just an option with possible glitches or bugs removed.

Any 'bugs' in the daily are usually fixed the day after it is pointed out or sooner as there may be more than one update per day. Excellent work on that.

See for example this discussion, for some of the reasons why keep the stable releases even if they're buggy. I agree that using stable releases might be troublesome, but using the daily packages brings sometimes problems too. The only difference is that for daily, they're fixed sooner.
