I want to install rofi 1.6 on ubuntu 18.04

But in the repositories only the version is available 1.5.0 and some extensions depend on newer versions

Is there a way to update the version?

  • You will likely need to compile yourself, unless a PPA would exist somewhere. It may be recommended to upgrade your operating system - latest LTS release is 20.04 - which will give you easy access to a more recent version of Rofi – vanadium Jun 8 at 13:07

There is a PPA by Constantin Piber with newer 1.6.1 version of rofi. To use it open terminal and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cppiber/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rofi
