Where can I get new Aegisub? Ubuntu reps have only 2.1.9 which is VERY buggy (it doesn't support cyrillic lower case, it's unaceptable for me). I found only source, but I'm not sure, that I can do everything right. Where to get new package (at least newer)?

You have two options: compile from source (which is easy if you follow the instructions) or use a precompiled package for 12.04 with your 12.10 version. In both cases you will get aegisub 3.0.1.

Install from precompiled package

On this page someone provides precompiled packages of aegisub and wxWidgets (install both packages) for Ubuntu 12.04. Despite the warning that the package is of low quality, the installation should work with Ubuntu 12.10 as well.

Compile from source

I've found step by step instructions in the aegisub forum. Please take a look at the post, the poster explains all steps.

A short version in case the link goes down:

  • Install dependencies: Open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and insert the following:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libasound2-dev libass-dev libffms2-dev libfftw3-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libgtk2.0-dev libhunspell-dev liblua5.1-dev checkinstall
  • Build wxWidgets by entering the following into the terminal (line for line):
    cd ~
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxwindows/files/latest/wxWidgets-2.9.4.tar.bz2
    tar xjf wxWidgets-2.9.4.tar.bz2
    cd wxWidgets-2.9.4
    ./configure --with-opengl
    sudo checkinstall
    sudo ldconfig
  • Build aegisub by entering the following into the terminal (line for line):
    cd ~
    wget http://ftp.aegisub.org/pub/releases/aegisub-3.0.1.tar.xz
    tar xJf aegisub-3.0.1.tar.xz
    cd aegisub-3.0.1/aegisub
    sudo checkinstall

  • I installed deb, but Aegisub does not start – charlag Dec 8 '12 at 14:29
  • Is there an error message? Try to start it from a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) with the command aegisub-3.0.1. If you installed from the precompiled packages, did you also install the wxWidgets package from here (sorry, didn't point this out in my answer)? – mrcktz Dec 11 '12 at 11:17
