Install PeerGuardian Linux (pgl) on Debian or Ubuntu systems

This page describes how to install prebuilt packages (this is normally recommended for everybody). If you want to build your own packages, read on here.

Configure your system to know about the packages

Add these entries to /etc/apt/sources.list:

Debian 6.0 squeeze:

deb squeeze main
deb-src squeeze main

Debian 7.0 wheezy:

deb wheezy main
deb-src wheezy main

Debian sid (unstable):

deb sid main
deb-src sid main

Ubuntu 8.04 hardy:

deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main
deb hardy main universe

All later Ubuntu versions:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jre-phoenix/ppa

Add my gpg key to the apt keyring

Packages at are signed with my gpg key. To verify the integrity of the packages you have to add my gpg key to the apt keyring. (Otherwise your package manager will warn you about UNTRUSTED sources. By adding the gpg key, you tell your package manager that you trust me.) My old gpg keys 9072870B and 58712F29 expired, use the new one C0145138 instead:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys C0145138
gpg --export --armor C0145138 | sudo apt-key add -

Ubuntu Hardy 8.04:

Packages at are built and then signed with another GPG key (both happens outside of my control). If you trust me and launchpad you have to use this:

gpg --keyserver --recv 9C0042C8
gpg --export --armor 9C0042C8 | sudo apt-key add -

This step can be omitted if you used add-apt-repository, see above.

Update your system with the package information

Run this command (on command line) to update the list of available packages:

sudo apt-get update

Install it

Either from within your package manager or from the command line:

sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd pglgui
