Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you how to install Synapse Indicator on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.
Synapse Indicator is a front-end for Synapse, developed for the elementary OS destop, but it also works well with Unity and Gnome Fallback, so the Ubuntu and Linux Mint users having Unity or Gnome Fallback can benefit from it.
Basicly, Synapse Indicator does the same things as the old fashioned Synaptic, but has some things improved. You don’t need to scroll down to see all the search results, and the results are grouped under categories, for a better observation.
Indicator Synapse is available in a repository, so installing it on Ubuntu and Linux Mint is a peace of cake:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gotwig/weekly
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install indicator-synapse
Log out and log back in and you’re done. Enjoy.
To install the indicator, hit Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal, copy and paste following commands and run one by one. So far, it won’t install on 64-bit of ubuntu 13.10 and 13.04 due to the build failures.
