How to update yade (stable) version

Asked by Leonard on 2019-09-15

Hi,
I'd like to update yade version from 2018.02b to 2019.01a-2 on Ubuntu 18.04.
What I did in terminal is:
sudo apt-get remove yade #remove current version which is 2018.02b
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install yade
I thought it would automatically install the latest stable yade version, but Ubuntu is still installed with yade 2018.02b.
I am not good at Linux, could you please give me some instruction?

Thanks
Leonard

Hi Leonard,

I would suggest you to install from sources. It is quite easy and it works. I installed Yade a month ago, there were few warnings,
but finally I was able to install it. Follow the instructions at [1], it you run into trouble, ask here.

I countered your problem earlier this week.
The new stable version (2019.01a) is currently on the new Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Fox), not the previous 18.04 (Bionic beaver).
You need to change the package address from Bionic to Disco.
What I did, was updating and installing the new 19.04 version.
I did stumble later when I tried to install the new stable version, because the package directories were still on Bionic for some reasone. So I had to update them my self, following this link [1], and it worked :)

Hope this helps.

If you use virtual systems, you can just install appropriate Ubuntu (19.04 as pointed by Yaniv) and install "normal" yade [1]
