I am presently using Kubuntu, and now I want to install Codeblocks latest version.

I tried using

$ sudo apt-get install codeblocks

but, it gives me Codeblocks 10.05.

I don't know where is the problem. Earlier I was able to install Codeblocks 12.11 in Ubuntu, why such problem in Kubuntu then?

download your version, extract it somewhere, find the directory using "cd"-command and write sudo dpkg -i *.deb and it will be installed.

Read the notice, before posting links Important note for Ubuntu users: The contrib-plugins package for debian can not be used on Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10, due to an incomaptible libhunspell-package. Alternatively you can use the Ubuntu repo provided by our user pasgui. – Nikki Kononov Mar 30 '13 at 11:00

dear friend the version available on ubuntu repositories is 10.05. if you want to install 12.11 or 12.12 download it from here

or use codeblocks PPA
