Installation

Ubuntu-based Distributions (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Elementary, etc)

Packages are available in Launchpad PPA for supported Ubuntu releases. Run the following commands in a terminal window:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ukuu

Ukuu should not be used on older Ubuntu systems as upgrading to very new kernels can break older systems.

Debian & Other Linux Distributions

This application fetches kernels from kernel.ubuntu.com which are provided by Canonical and meant for installation on Ubuntu-based distributions. These should not be used on Debian and other non-Ubuntu distributions such as Arch Linux, Fedora, etc.

Downloads & Source Code

Ukuu is written using Vala and GTK3 toolkit. Source code and binaries are available from the GitHub project page.
