i am on ubuntu, and want to download the litecoin wallet.  i'm not an expert though and dont really understand how to unpack these tar files etc.

is there a simple command i can use like "sudo apt-get litecoin_qt" which will set the wallet up for me?

Not in the actual ubuntu repositories. You'd have to look for a third party repository which might be maintained by someone who isn't necessarily friendly to your interests.

The safest option is just downloading the official tarball and building it yourself. It is safer by leaps and bounds.

You don't need to be root to clone the repo. Also, cloning the repo is not always a good idea, because you don't want to be on the bleeding edge. Wink

If I'm not mistaken the command to unpack a tarball is 'tar xfvz litecoin.tar.gz'. There will be some instructions in the release.
