Install Ubuntu 10.10 Software Centre in Lucid

There is, of course, lots more currently going on with the development version of the software centre than just visual flair – there are bug fixes, performance improvements & a new option to share install links via micro-blogging services directly from the Software Centre itself.

Install Maverick’s updated Software Centre in Lucid
You don’t need to dip your toes in the waters of temptation to start benefiting/tearing your hair out over the latest development version of the Ubuntu mall as the awesome Guido Iodice mailed us to share with you that he maintains a back ported version in his exhaustive PPA (which is only recommended for those who are okay with bleeding edge packages, potential new bugs & more than their fair share of breakages every now and then.)
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:guido-iodice/guiodiclucid
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install software-center
Thanks Guido!
