Is Flock browser available in Ubuntu 10.4. If so how do I download in command line. Is it perhaps:

It is probably not available in the core repositories:

apt-cache search flock

returns nothing like that on an Ubuntu system.

Thanks. Did a bit of browsing and found that Ubuntu needs to be prepared for Flock first with: sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 – namkid Sep 5 '10 at 20:34
@namkid: You may want to consider documenting your steps to setup Flock as an answer to this question. – Marco Ceppi Sep 5 '10 at 21:07

From the commandline I would do (using GetDeb-Packages):

sudo bash -c "echo deb lucid-getdeb apps games >> /etc/apt/sources.list"
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - 
sudo aptitude install flock

Try something like:


Unpack and follow the installation instructions.

(That's en-CA for Canadian English; there are different localizations.)

I've written up a how-to previously, here.

You'll have to install libstdc++5 so it works properly.
