From the commandline I would do (using GetDeb-Packages):

sudo bash -c "echo deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps games >> /etc/apt/sources.list"
wget -q http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key -O- | sudo apt-key add - 
sudo aptitude install flock

Try something like:

wget http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/flock/releases/2.0.3/l10n/en-CA/flock-2.0.3.en-CA.linux-i686.tar.bz2

Unpack and follow the installation instructions.

(That's en-CA for Canadian English; there are different localizations.)


I've written up a how-to previously, here.

You'll have to install libstdc++5 so it works properly.


It is probably not available in the core repositories:

apt-cache search flock

returns nothing like that on an Ubuntu system.

  • Thanks. Did a bit of browsing and found that Ubuntu needs to be prepared for Flock first with: sudo apt-get install libstdc++5
