Hi,
Since Ubuntu is most popular desktop linux distro why there are no repository or even builds of bitcoin client? I think someone should start to create something like repo with bitcoin's builds, better ppa on launchpad. It will be so cool to have native payment system in ubuntu, maybe one day bitcoin will be included in the main repository

Well, If you can compile bitcoin and create a source DEB, you can set up a PPA.

I'm actually working on setting up a PPA for bitcoin, but it also requires the dev branch of wxWidgets, so I've got to get that up first.

Well, I couldn't find any good directions on how to package a .deb for a ppa, but I haven't given up hope yet.  Anyone who can throw some documentation my way would be awesome.  Right now I'm trying a different strategy.

I run ubuntu on my desktop maybe I can help ...

EDIT: first time I've tried it, but I made a launch pad project here: https://launchpad.net/bitcoin  hopefully we can work out how to do ppa etc.

I've got a launchpad ppa set up too, but launchpad is a huge PITA from what I've tried.

I've got bitcoin compiled for AMD64 linux.  yay.
So now I've just got to figure out how to hack it so that I can package it as a deb.

If I'm not mistaken, Ubuntu's PPA requires you to have your project uploaded in source form. Launchpad then compiles it and offers debs.

So do I have to do anything special to the source?  I know that the standard method of building a .deb doesn't work, 'make -f makefile.unix' just spits out a binary.  No chance to checkinstall or anything

Would you add me to the maintainers of the project on launchpad? My username is cdecker and I have ready built deb packages from my efforts on openSuse Build Service http://bit.ly/bUqiRY

GUI builds are quite a bit harder since they also require WX to be built along with it.

I'll try to create a statically linked version on OBS soon.

I've built the client and daemon for Ubuntu 9.04 (should work in later versions ?)
Not a package per say, but you can just download the current Linux release and just overwrite the binaries. Not perfect, but it will get a working version for you that way.

Yeah I've built the binaries before, I want to be able to upgrade via the update manager rather than manually downloading the binaries.

Oh you mean official binaries in package form hosted by the Ubuntu folks?

Not necessarily hosted by launchpad or anything, just packages available from a mirror somewhere.
