I know nothing about Linux and I can't figure out how to install vapoursynth on Lubuntu 16.04 LTS (I'm a fresh user). Since I can't find a step by step guide on the net (they all assume I know what I'm doing), I was wandering if someone could help me out.


To install vapoursynth on lubuntu follow these steps:

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)

Add the PPA (Personal Package Archives) for vapoursynth

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:djcj/hybrid

Update package lists

sudo apt-get update

Install vapoursynth

sudo apt-get install vapoursynth
  • For those of you who encounter this problem in future, this PPA, it seems, has moved to djcj/hybrid. – stranger_anon Apr 30 '19 at 1:57
  • @stranger_anon Thank you for the information. – Arun May 12 '19 at 4:15
  • @stranger_anon PPA is discontinued and installation not possible. Any Advice? – hullunist Aug 27 '19 at 16:52
  • @hullunist sorry, I guess it needs to be built from source now. I haven't gone through the documentation myself, so not sure. – stranger_anon Aug 29 '19 at 15:19
