update Ardour

Is there a quick and easy way to update through terminal?

I’m running LINUX Mint 17.1 (mate) I just upgraded from 16 to 17.1 from the terminal, no prob.

I downloaded
Ardour 3.5.403 dbg-tar


I did all the sudo apt-get stuff from the terminal and it says it’s all updated but when I click on the desktop launch icon it brings up an ardour screen that says there’s a newer version out there floating around. Obviously I’m missing a few screws…

please disregard.

Go to Terminal:

type: ardour3

easy as pie. Sorry.

Did you untar the file you downloaded and run the ./install.sh file?
You shouldn’t need to run apt-get to install from the download.
