Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, MakeHuman is an open-source tool for creating virtual humans with only a few clicks, via an intuitive and easy to use GUI.
The latest version available is MakeHuman 1.0.2, which has been released a while ago. For information about the changes made to this version, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install MakeHuman 1.0.2 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via the GetDeb repository, installing MakeHuman 1.0.2 on Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the repository and the key to your system, update the local repository index and install the makehuman package. Like this:
$ wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu trusty-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install makehuman
