If you are using Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid it is now packaged and installable using the following command:

sudo apt-get install ntpstat

If you are using 14.10 or older you can try downloading the package from:


and install the deb file using the following command (using the appropiate file path and 64/32bit version in the file name):

sudo dpkg -i ntpstat_0.0.0.1-1_amd64.deb

I tested the above method for 14.10 and ntpstat did not pull in any extra dependancies for me, but YMMV.


You can install it by apt-get:

sudo apt-get install ntpstat

There is one here in Launchpad. It might be unstable. Download the deb file suited to your computer and install it using:

sudo dpkg -i <path-to-downloaded-deb-package>
