    I followed these instructions exactly. But the new version installed on my system is 3.2.1 rather than 3.0.0. Why is that?

  • ZInovsky

    Did you install it via PPA?

  • Dan

    I am new to Linux and I don’t fully understand all of the command lines used in your installation instructions above. But I entered the commands in steps 1, 2, & 3 and then sudo apt-get install

    OK I checked into it further. Their PPA packages have not yet been updated to include 3.3. So when I ran the update cammand I got 3.2 instead. That’s fine for now. Thanks
