I want to install winusb software on ubuntu 13.10. Installation via PPA method doesn't work.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install winusb

To install do this. just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install winusb

It has been tested, and it works OK. See image below

enter image description here Before 13.10 was added to the PPA, a work around is to do the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/colingille-freshlight-saucy.list
(change saucy to raring)
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install winusb

    I have just uploaded a version for Ubuntu 13.10 on my PPA, so it is now possible to install winusb directly. Thanks Mitch for your answer. – user223240 Dec 7 '13 at 23:29

For Ubuntu 14.04, the repository is not current, but you can download the .deb and install with dpkg

Download the 64-bit .deb here,

or the 32-bit here,

and then go to this answer on Ask Ubuntu for complete installation instructions.
