Regina for Ubuntu: Bionic (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) already comes with Regina, but this will be forever fixed at version 5.1.

To keep up-to-date with the newest version of Regina, follow these instructions.

You only need to follow these steps the first time you install Regina. After this, Ubuntu's Software Updater will handle upgrades for you, just like for any other Ubuntu package.

  1. Add Regina's location to your list of repositories. To do this, open the Ubuntu Software application and select Software & Updates from the main menu.

  2. Now search for Regina in the Ubuntu Software Centre.

    Click on the package name (or icon, or description), and you will see more information. You should ensure that the version is correct (i.e., you are getting the latest version of Regina from this site, not the older version that is already bundled into Ubuntu).

    Once you are satisfied that Ubuntu has found the right version, press Install and you are finished!

The procedure above only installs the main packages regina-normal and regina-normal-doc, which is all that most people will need.

If you are a C++ programmer and you wish to build Regina into your own projects, you should also install the package regina-normal-dev.
