Install Geany 1.22 on Ubuntu 12.04
Update 2013-04-11: I recently started to have `partial upgrade’ issues with this ppa (it seems like the plugins did not build for 64bit machines). This caused update issues with other, more important parts of Ubuntu. As a result, I removed geany, geany-plugins and the ppa. I would carefully investigate before using the ppa.
In a previous post I installed Geany from the repository. A new version is available with plugins — I will install using the details described here and here for the plugins (and color schemes, if desired).
Note: I removed the repository version of Geany before the install — you only need to do this is you have already installed an earlier Geany version. The remove command with apt-get is (this removes the application while preserving the configuration files)
sudo apt-get remove geany
The following commands will add the ppa and install Geany along with the plugins:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:geany-dev/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install geany geany-plugins
