How To Install Subsurface 4.5.3 on Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 14.04 And Derivative Systems

As you may know, Subsurface is a diving log application, written by Linus Torvalds himself. The latest version available is Subsurface 4.5.3, which has been recently released, coming with changes:

  • Fix confusing warning about different number of tanks and gases on some Suunto dive computers
  • Fix missing temperatures on some Suunto dive computers
  • Fix several corner cases in the Uemis support
  • Fix a few random UI inconsistencies (UI elements not being cleared / removed / reset in certain circumstances)
  • Cloud storage: no longer store picture binary data in the Subsurface cloud storage — this could cause excessively long sync times
  • When matching dive site names when entering a location name, match anywhere in the location name, not just from the beginning (this makes it much easier to find existing dive locations if you remember only part of the name)
  • Some fixes for importing data from other formats
  • English user manual has been updated for language consistency and readability

Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.x, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya and other Ubuntu derivative systems is easy.

All you need to do is add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the subsurface package:

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

Optional, to remove subsurface, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove subsurface
