I try to install Pipelight using this command line: sudo apt-get install pipelight and then I get this...

btcbro21@btcbro21-p7-1074:~$ sudo apt-get install pipelight

E: Unable to locate package pipelight

I know that I typed it in right. Why won't it locate that package?

  • As RiotingPacifist said, this program isn't in the main package repository, as you can see here: packages.ubuntu.com/…. Avinash Raj's answer should solve your problem. – RPiAwesomeness Jan 4 '14 at 22:50

To install pipelight run the below commands on terminal,

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pipelight-multi

Pipelight is not in the ubuntu repositories, to install it you must first add a PPA (personal package archive (a.k.a just some files some guy uploaded to launchpad))

The ppa you probably want is at https://launchpad.net/~mqchael/+archive/pipelight which can be added with sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mqchael/pipelight

Install it as your own risk, mqchael is probably a nice guy but he could be out to infect machines with malware.
