I'd like to install massif-visualizer on Ubuntu 14.04.

By default, there's no such package on that release. Which repository contains that package?

$ sudo apt-get install massif-visualizer

massif-visualizer is available on 3rd Party Repository: Kubuntu-ppa Backports

Install by following command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install massif-visualizer

I have a working massif-visualizer on Ubuntu 14.04, thanks Rinzwind!

Here is what made it work:

  1. Go to launchpad page for massif visualizer.

  2. Under 'Published versions' section select the correct arch, and then download the .deb package.

  3. Install the package (thanks Pandya):

    sudo gdebi -i massif-visualizer_0.3-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb

    Suggestion:Using sudo gdebi instead of only sudo dpkg is helpful for getting any dependencies if required.(future-help) – Pandya Sep 10 '14 at 12:53

For me the link to the launchpad page for massif-visualizer yields a page that tells me it is not available for trusty.

So the answer is unhelpful/wrong, at least now. (It may have been valid when it was written, who knows.)

I downloaded the package for 64-bit from this page provided by Pandya: https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/kubuntu-ppa_backports/trusty/main/base/massif-visualizer

Put the package in the directory then followed the instructions:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install massif-visualizer

It works as a charm!

On Ubuntu 18.04 I just needed to install it with:

sudo apt-get install massif-visualizer

In case it is relevant to anyone.

Cheers,

Guy.
