Instructions for Ubuntu 64-bits

According to this note in the PPA's project, the ppa was deprecated:

Toggl Desktop in launchpad is now deprecated. We have a new version out which can be downloaded here: http://support.toggl.com/2013/05/02/toggl-on-my-desktop/

Meaning? You have to download the binaries and executing them, as there isn't an installation script. I recommend running Toggl from the extracted directory. You need to install certain dependencies and use Ubuntu 64 bits.

For this you should go to this page, download the Linux version using a browser (wget and curl seems to fail to do this). The file will normally be downloaded into your ~/Downloads directory. Since this directory is normally full of other files, I would recommend to move it into a clean directory:

cd ~/Downloads
mkdir toggle
mv TogglDesktop_2013-10-17-13-05-20.tgz toggle/
cd toggle/

Uncompress the files:

$ tar xzf TogglDesktop_2013-10-17-13-05-20.tgz
$ ls
CHANGELOG.txt  LICENSE.txt  modules    runtime    TogglDesktop
installer      manifest     Resources  tiapp.xml  TogglDesktop_2013-10-17-13-05-20.tgz

Now install the dependencies:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62 libxss1

Once this is done, just run ./TogglDesktop and ready.

Important notes from the installation page:

  • Toggl Desktop has been tested with Unity, Gnome and KDE in general should be working. There are known issues with LXDE.
  • At the moment there is only 64bit binary package available. 32bit version is planned. There are no distribution-specific packages available.
  • They are working on adding a generic .deb package which should be usable on all (recent) Debian based distributions.
  • Currently, Toggl Desktop is only tested on Ubuntu. Most probably all recent Debian-based distributions will work, but they are untested.

That blogpost is from the 2010, the PPA is not maintained anymore. The package isn't in the repositories. –  Braiam Sep 16 '13 at 20:15
