I'd like to upgrade Sigil to the latest version (currently it is 0.7.2), and I'm looking for a repository that provides it.

The Sigil website lists some repositories for various Linux distros, but the ubuntu one (the one I need) doesn't seems updated anymore; from there, I can only get version 0.6.2.

There are some other repositories beside this one?

EDIT: I'm using Kubuntu 12.04 Precise

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • That's funny, because if I go to launchpad.net/~rgibert/+archive/ebook it seems to be even older than 0.6.3. Building from source, maybe using the git repository is, as for now, the only way to get the newest version. – FSMaxB Apr 19 '13 at 13:26
  • Yes, it shows an older version, but I'm quite sure that I've installed it from there. Anyway, I'm not in extreme need, so I think I will wait, I've read that its QT5 dependencies are a mess for 12.04 – user157777 Apr 19 '13 at 14:50
  • I can try and build this in a separate PPA, using the old debian/ file to build the new code, no clue if it'll work or not, would that help? – Thomas Ward May 15 '13 at 14:50
  • Thank you but there is no need to do it, I was looking for a (semi)official one. – user157777 May 15 '13 at 18:17
  • I'm not sure you'll find an official one, short of downloading and building the source yourself. – Thomas Ward May 16 '13 at 3:52

most safety way to upgrade your sigil package is from source code... because this package doesn't include on official repository in Ubuntu..
