How To Install Linspeed 1.0 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Linspeed is an open-source, lightweight, Qt based tool for performing speedtesting the internet connection.

The latest version available is Linspeed 1.0, which has been released a while ago.

How To Install Linspeed 1.0 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivative Systems

In this article I will show you how to install Linspeed 1.0 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Peppermint, Deepin, LXLE, Linux Lite, Debian, Kwheezy, SparkyLinux and other Debian and Ubuntu derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any repository, we have to download the linspeed deb package from the project’s website and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

Follow the instructions for your system’s architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

How to install Linspeed 1.0 on 32 bit Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/linspeed/files/32Bit/linspeed_1.0_i386.deb
$ gdebi linspeed_1.0_i386.deb

How to install Linspeed 1.0 on 64 bit Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/linspeed/files/64Bit/linspeed_1.0_amd64.deb
$ gdebi nspeed_1.0_amd64.deb

Optional, to remove Linspeed, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove linspeed
