I am pleased to announce that Kitware is now offering an officially-supported set of Ubuntu packages for CMake. These CMake packages can be installed with
apt-get, just like other Ubuntu packages. We currently support Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04.
The following packages are available:
cmake– Contains the CMake command line executable, CTest, and CPack.
cmake-curses-gui– Contains ccmake.
cmake-qt-gui– Contains cmake-gui.
cmake-doc– Contains the CMake documentation.
To use these packages, follow the instructions at https://apt.kitware.com/ to add our APT repository to your Ubuntu installation, and then use
apt-get install to install one or all of the above packages.
We currently offer CMake 3.14.1, and will continue to update the repository as new CMake releases are issued.
