I've installed pgadmin3 on a remote ubuntu client and succesfully connected to the postgres db using:

sudo apt-get install pgadmin3

Problem is that when connecting to the postgres 9.1 server it notifies me that I don't have the latest pgadmin and some of the features might not work using this client.

From reading the pgadmin site I should download the postgres binary at http://www.enterprisedb.com/products/pgdownload.do but that's only a installer bin.

How can I install the pgadmin from that binary as the ubuntu one is not the latest? Alternatively, is there any other location where I can find the pgadmin binaries?

  • Jorge, it's a specific problem for ubuntu 11.10 and postgresql 9.1. Check the post properly before editing. – Asken Nov 14 '11 at 14:02

There is a PPA having 1.14.0beta1 version but it does not have 11.10 support:


So you can try to add this PPA as 11.04 or download directly the packages and install them by hand:


  • Can you walk me through it? I'm just an enthusiast. I've downloaded the tar.gz an unpacked it. Checking the INSTALL file. Says I should install postgresql... it's on another machine and I'd rather not install it on the client. – Asken Nov 14 '11 at 13:30

    Which tar.gz files? If you are asking for my answer, you can see there .deb packages. Just pick pgadmin3-data_1.14.0~beta1-1~ppa1~natty1_all.deb and according to your OS architecture pgadmin3_1.14.0~beta1-1~ppa1~natty1_i386.deb or pgadmin3_1.14.0~beta1-1~ppa1~natty1_amd64.deb – heartsmagic Nov 14 '11 at 15:08
  • You are welcome. I am glad that it worked. – heartsmagic Nov 14 '11 at 16:43

this ppa works for me (ubuntu 11.10 32bit):

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/postgres
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pgadmin3
  • I'm afraid that the ppa does not exists anymore. – Paco Abato Jul 29 '17 at 15:32
