In this article I will show you how to install Sunflower 0.2.59 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2, Debian Jessie, Debian Wheezy, SparkyLinux and other Ubuntu and Debian derivative systems.

For Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and derivative systems, Sunflower 0.2.59 is available via PPA, so installing it is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the sunflower package. Like this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/sunflower
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install sunflower

Optional, to remove Sunflower 0.2.59, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove sunflower

For Debian, SparkyLinux and other Debian derivative systems, we have to download the 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.

$ wget http://sunflower-fm.org/pub/sunflower-0.2.59-1.all.deb
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ sudo gdebi sunflower-0.2.59-1.all.deb

Optional, to remove Sunflower do:

$ sudo apt-get remove sunflower
