Browser update that doesn´t
1.4.0 installed ..I recieved an update notice on my browser so i tried update manager / nothing there.. tried synaptic that shows the same 1.4.0.... i go to the Qupzilla web page and it said you must do and apt get install.... and it quotes the scrript to get and install so i copied and pasted that into a a terminal.
it seemed to run for a longtime what looked like it was upgrading the whole repositories when it was finished I checked my browser it was still the same 1.4.0 and not 1.4.1 that its supposed to upgrade to...
i tried by uninstalling the browser through synaptic then re installing bbut the browser came back as 1.4.0 and still had my old bookmarks etc..
and i still keep getting nags for a browser upgrade
i use a ubuntu derivative based on 12.04 (maybe) called watt os, and am and am dumber than a kamote on CL type stuff.
any ideas on how i can upgrade this

Did you install it using a ppa? (info here)
If so, on the command line runCode:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
I've never heard of qupzilla so am trying it now. First impressions are good.

Thanks for the reply I did the original install from the website.. and then i recieved an update notification which linked me to the official web site and gave the instructions on installing which is:- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qupzilla
it seemed like it was all going as usuall except the actual browser didnt update at all .. and still doesn´t
I Like this browser a lot i have had no problems with it at all so far apart from this upgrade.
i was using Midori before and that seemed to crash very regularly and this one seems as fast as midori.

Did you use the Ubuntu install? If so the command I showed earlier will work.
