Install PeerGuardian Linux (pgl) on Debian or Ubuntu systems

This page describes how to install prebuilt packages (this is normally recommended for everybody on the supported distributions). 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 7 Wheezy:

deb wheezy main
deb-src wheezy main

Debian 8 Jessie:

deb jessie main
deb-src jessie main

Debian Stretch (testing):

deb stretch main
deb-src stretch main

Debian sid (unstable):

deb sid main
deb-src sid main


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 -

This step can be omitted on Ubuntu since you used add-apt-repository.

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
