Ubuntu: How to install version 4.11 of the package texinfo?



Question:

I need to install the package texinfo version 4.11 that I downloaded from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/texinfo/ and unpacked (folder texinfo-4.11).

I already installed packages with the 'sudo apt-get install' command in the terminal. However, this does not work with 'sudo apt-get install texinfo-4.11' in the correct terminal location. The following error messages appear:

E: Unable to locate package texinfo-4.11

E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'texinfo-4.11'


Solution:1

You can't install software like that unless it's "packaged" for your system. You might want to see if someone has already created a package for Ubuntu. Otherwise, you'll have to compile and install manually. It isn't difficult, but also not as convenient as using an installer.

For basic installation instructions, look in texinfo-4.11.tar.bz/texinfo-4.11/INSTALL.
