Repository or manual upgrade to latest stable version

Asked by Qian on 2012-11-26

Hi, can someone make 2.16.1 available on repository or post detailed instructions for manual download and upgrade? Downloading from the site creates a home/bin/ which doesn't affect the running version.

Thanks.

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

You didn't give the output of the command I gave.

Glad the PPA helped

You can search PPAs using:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas

Or if you use duckduckgo you can use:

!ppa packagename

and you can find PPAs for packages.

Now I'm noticing something weird. After following the instructions on the PPA, the command 'lilypond xyz.ly" runs version 2.16.1 but convert-ly printed 2.16.0 at the top of each .ly file. I don't think it produces errors, though.
