So I was looking at Jorge Castro's blog, and I saw that there was a Reddit lens for Ubuntu 11.04 Unity. How do I install it? Is there a PPA?

I've created a .deb but I didn't get home to test it... I'll make a post on WebUpd8 in a few hours if it works. – Alin Andrei Apr 19 '11 at 14:05

You can download the .deb I've created using Andrew Starr-Bochicchio's packaging from HERE.

Once installed, log out and log back in for Unity Reddit Lens to work.

For more info (like configuring it - you must edit a file for this), see the article on WebUpd8.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Jorge Castro Apr 19 '11 at 18:14
@Jorge: I know what you mean but it's not applicable in this case because I've posted a link to the .deb :) I guess I should add that you must log out after installing it, but that's it... Edit: my bad... the link wasn't to the deb though it was supposed to be, I'll edit it. – Alin Andrei Apr 19 '11 at 20:01

Ubuntu 11.10 & 12.04

For Ubuntu 11.10 & 12.04, the Reddit Lens may be installed as follows:

In a terminal, type the following commands:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa 
 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install unity-reddit-lens

Then log out and log back in to activate the lens.
