what is the command to install 'xidel' on ubuntu? I tried sudo apt -get install xidel but I am getting an error 'Unable to locate package xidel'
xidel is not in the official Ubuntu repositories (checked with
apt-cache search xidel ).
Download appropriate package from their site http://www.videlibri.de/xidel.html#downloads, uncompress , and install. Best would be the
*.deb package, which you can simply install with
sudo dpkg -i /path/to/file.deb. Check if it asks for dependencies - you may need to install those first. Refer to this question https://askubuntu.com/q/80655/295286
