Install ‘FocusWriter’ 1.4.6 on LMDE 2014 & Ubuntu 13.10, 14.04

‘FocusWriter’ is my favorite distraction-free writing application. It runs of multiple OS platforms, completely free to use, & the Windows version is portable as well.

Recently it was updated twice (latest version is 1.4.6) both of which have brought lots of bug fixes. So if you are using a version lower than 1.4.5, then perhaps it is time for updating it.

If you are using ‘Linux Mint Debian 2014‘, then please follow the below procedure.



If you are using the 64-bit version then download the ‘deb’ package from here. 32-bit users, please get this one instead. Once the download completes, double click on it and the ‘GDebi’ package install will install it for you.

If you use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 13.10, 12.10 & 12.04 LTS then use the below commands.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gottcode/gcppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install focuswriter
