I'm trying to upgrade my version of tree to 1.6 on ubuntu 12.04.

I've d'loaded, ran make and make install in the terminal using the sudo command.

~/tree-1.6.0$ sudo make
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.

I've already run sudo make here

~/tree-1.6.0$ sudo make install
install -d /usr/bin
install -d /usr/man/man1
if [ -e tree ]; then \
        install -s tree /usr/bin/tree; \
install doc/tree.1 /usr/man/man1/tree.1

What's this output though? It's not updated. I've checked the man page, and -du doesn't work.

How am I supposed to update tree if not via the terminal?


Instead of building from source, you can just install from the deb file.

Grab the deb file for your architecture from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/t/tree/.

Click on the deb file and install it in software-center.
