Since there is no PPA yet, you first need to pull the source code.

1. Install Bazaar with 'sudo apt-get install bzr'
2. Fetch the repository with 'bzr branch lp:taxi'
3. Install dependency libraries with 'sudo apt-get install libgranite-dev' and 'sudo apt-get install libsoup-gnome2.4-dev'. GTK should be already present.
4. Install Vala programming language with 'sudo apt-get install valac'
5. Run in the repo folder.

Instructions are provided in the file called INSTALL. :)

Any ppa would be very helpful though.

Manual Installation

$ bzr branch lp:taxi
$ cd taxi
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .. # Adwaita users add -DADWAITA_FIXES=1
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ taxi

This works fine ;)
