How to install xnviewmp using package management aptitude apt-get on Ubuntu 12.10?

Visiting https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/xnviewmp/ and clicking through to software center ends results in a not found error.

I have all the ubuntu software sources enabled, and the "partners" sources as well.

Both apt-cache searches return no results as well.

apt-cache search xnview and apt-cache search xnviewmp

I'm wondering If I'm missing something in /etc/apt/sources.list Alternatively, how can I find something from either xnview.com or apps.ubuntu.com that will show me what I could add to sources.list to allow updating via "apt-get update".

I ended up installing the package using dpkg -i xnview...deb -- but I'd like to understand what I'm missing in the above fails.

I asked on #ubuntu a few times and was just encouraged to install using the *.deb .

Thanks much for any help!

  • I might be being a bit thick, but have you tried simply "sudo apt-get install xnviewmp" ? – somoso Apr 26 '13 at 22:06
  • I don't use Ubuntu so I can't test, but it might have been removed from the repos (it's proprietary) and not from the website. – Alex Apr 26 '13 at 22:19

  • In that case, it isn't in the official repositories. If you really want a repository, there is a third party repository you can install by doing sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway, sudo apt-get update, and then sudo apt-get install xnview but like the people on #ubuntu said, it is best if you just stick to the website debs until they provide a repository themselves. – somoso Nov 20 '13 at 11:35
