Update LyX in Ubuntu 11.10

The version of LyX installed from Ubuntu Software Center is 2.0.0.
The latest version of LyX can be obtained from GetDeb repository that always provide the newest version.
a) Download GetDeb
b) Install it by double click the getdeb-repository_0.1-1~getdeb1_all.deb file (it could be found in Downloads folder). This installation just adds GetDeb repository address to Ubuntu software sources.
c) Running the update-manager will automatically show the latest version of LyX.


  1. windows and ubuntu..where most stable when we use lyx software...

  2. Personally I prefer to use Ubuntu. In my own experience, when you view pdf, Windows takes more time.
