I am looking for an up to date version of google-mocks since 1.4 is no longer supported and has a show stopper bug using ICC. So, does anyone know of a PPA? My google search skills did not show anything.

I haven't found any ppa but; Oneric will be have 1.6 in its repositories. You will also find deb's here; but they might not work due to your bug. – danjjl Oct 3 '11 at 12:30

I havent found a PPA with this in - however Oneiric has v1.6 in its repositories.

The dependencies are:

libc6 (>= 2.1.3) libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) libgtest-dev (>= 1.6.0) libstdc++6 (>= 4.4.0) python

As far as I can gather - and assuming you are using 11.04 - most of the dependencies are satisfied by the versions in the 11.04 repositories.

Therefore you should be able to download the .deb file from launchpad

libgtest-dev is older in natty - you should also download and install this from the oneiric area of launchpad before installing the google-mock deb

N.B. download either 32bit or 64bit as appropriate to your platform and install with the syntax

sudo dpkg -i [package name].deb

As always - ensure you have a good backup you can reuse if your system becomes unstable.
