Subject: Ubuntu 14.04 : How to install a newer PSPP version via Adam Zammits ppa
the default pspp version in Ubuntu 14.04 is 0.7.9 which is quite old. You can install a newer version
of pspp via the ppa from Adam Zammit. You need to do the following steps:
a) Uninstall the current 0.7.9 version
sudo apt-get remove pspp
b) Check your current version:
address@hidden:~$ dpkg-query -l | grep pspp
rc pspp 0.7.9+git20120620-1.2 amd64 Statistical analysis tool
This is the version that will be installed when you run: sudo apt-get install pspp
c) Add Adam Zammits PPA to your package sources:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adamzammit/pspp
d) Now update your source database
sudo apt-get update
d) Check that the new version is available
apt-cache show pspp
=> You will see the two pspp packages 0.7.9 and 0.10.1 from Adam
e) Install the package
sudo apt-get install pspp
f) Run the GUI
Could you try this recipe?
