[ubuntu] QGIS up and running

Finally: QGIS on up and running on my Saucy

After trying out several tutorial, finally I can setup the QGIS to run on my machine with the following commands.

Be sure to check that there are no http://qgis.org/debian lines from your /etc/apt/sources.list

If you aren't sure, just check open Terminal Window. Then type sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list. Then check the last commands for any qgis lines. Delete them, then hit save and close.

Next type the following commands on your terminat prompt. Hit return on every line.

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qgis python-qgis qgis-plugin-grass

It should be working fine.

Good luck.

(thanks to: askubuntu)
