How to install a current version of git to your Ubuntu machine

As described by the linked Stackoverflow answer, run these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git git --version

This will get you Git 2.6.4 (as of Dec 2015).


If you don't have add-apt-repository yet, install it with:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties software-properties-common

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
