Having trouble installing latest version of Tiled Editor from console. I need the latest updates for my project. Adding the PPA is not giving me the latest version of the software. Running the program says I am on version 0.9.1 which is several years old. Latest Release 0.15.1.

Added the PPA as described here: https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA/InstallingSoftware

Tiled Package page: Can not post 2nd link. Google Tiled Map Editor > Click on Downloads link > Click on Unbuntu button > Takes you to the page with the PPA and package information.



Commands ran:

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mapeditor.org/tiled
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install tiled

Command 1 output:

Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --homedir /tmp/tmp.dZ9qFucBve --no-auto-check-trustdb --trust-model always --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/steam.gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 9F7F5BAF gpg: requesting key 9F7F5BAF from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com gpg: key 9F7F5BAF: public key "Launchpad PPA for mapeditor.org" imported gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)

  • Unfortunately, that PPA seems very old and out of date. That version doesn't even seem to be able to load many common image formats. The tileset image selector dialog can't detect jpg/png/gif/tif images on my system.

This question was solved in a comment on this page by dadexix86. https://askubuntu.com/questions/727871/how-to-install-latest-version-of-tiled-editor-on-ubuntu?noredirect=1#comment1078796_727871


Tried right now on Wily and it works version 0.15.1 . The package name in the ppa is tiled-daily, while tiled is the one in the standard Ubuntu repo (don't know how it is on Mint, thuogh) – dadexix86


Instead of doing: sudo apt-get install tiled

This worked to get the daily version (latest version): sudo apt-get install tiled-daily

  • Looks like that package has been removed. E: Unable to locate package tiled-daily
