In this article I will show you how to install Corebird on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, both  systems using the GNOME Desktop environment.

While Ubuntu GNOME 3.14 uses GNOME 3.10, you need to add the GNOME3 and GNOME 3 Staging PPAs. Also, despite the fact that Ubuntu GNOME 14.10 will be most likely based on GNOME 3.12 and GTK 3.12, for now, it still uses GTK 3.10, so you also need to add the two ppas.

Also, corebird is available via PPA, so installing it on Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 14.10 using GNOME is easy. Just add the needed ppas to your system, update the local repository index and install the corebird package. Like this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/corebird
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install corebird

In order not to get the a lot of unstable packages, remove the GNOME3 Staging PPA, after you have successfully installed corebird:

$ sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
