I was trying to install "PokerTH" with Ubuntu software center but it installed an older version of the game.

When I ran the game it told me that I must install the newest version of game to play this game online.

How can I install the newest version via terminal?

  • What version of Ubuntu are you using? Tried this PPA? launchpad.net/~pkg-games/+archive/ppa

You have to add the pokerTH teams PPA.

You can get the PPA for ubuntu 12.10 from the games Launchpad site. https://launchpad.net/~pkg-games/+archive/ppa

To add a PPA, open your terminal (CTRL+T or search the dash)

type in

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pkg-games/ppa

it will ask for your root password (admin) and you will not see anything as you type it in, but that's alright. After writing the password hit RETURN / ENTER

Then you will have to update all you software sources, by typing:

sudo apt-get update

and finally you can install the game

sudo apt-get install pokerth
