The recommended way is to install Skrooge using your distribution's package management tool.
However, if Skrooge is not yet available in repositories, you should of course bug the distro's packagers to include it, but in the mean time you can compile and install Skrooge yourself, it is not that difficult.
Ubuntu's policy is not to propose the latest software versions, but rather to focus on stability. For that reason, it is possible that the Skrooge version available in official repositories is usually several versions behind the latest stable from developers.
To install Skrooge on Ubuntu from our PPA, you need to:
- Open a terminal and enter:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:s-mankowski/ppa-kf5
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:s-mankowski/beta-kf5
- Tell Ubuntu to re-load the details of each software archive it knows about:
sudo apt-get update
- Install Skrooge:
sudo apt-get install skrooge-kf5

If you are using Linux, Skrooge might already be pre-installed on your system as part of a default selection. If not, you can install it with the package management tool of your Linux distribution. See its documentation for details.
