In this article I will show you how to install XnViewMP 0.68 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, LXLE 14.04, Peppermint Five and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.

Because it is available via PPA, installing XnViewMP 0.68 on Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the xnview package. Like this:

Optional, to remove XnViewMP, do:

$ sudo apt-get install xnview

If you don’t want to add any ppa to your system, you can download  the deb package for your system’s architecture exactly and install it via the command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg, due to the fact that it also handles dependencies:
