zyGrib under Ubuntu 12.04

I have used the above combo to get a good overview of weather. Unfortunately the version of zyGrib that is in the software center is ver 3.9something and no longer works right. More specifically the program works but you can't grab a new Grib file without it complaining about outdated software.
Unfortunately I have been unable to figure out where to get the latest version of zyGrib. It is listed on the zyGrib home page but for the life of me I can't figure out how to deal with the information to get the new version downloaded.
Has anyone managed to upgrade to 6.0.2 under Ubuntu 12.04 ? If so, I could sure use a hint as to what secret handshake is to be used in order to get to the .deb file for 64 bit version 6.0.2.

Re: zyGrib under Ubuntu 12.04

As I had zygrib auto-updated yesterday, I checked my current version, and it is indeed 6.02.

It is a question of adding the right repository line. Instructions here. zyGrib • Consulter le sujet - Ubuntu / Debian : dépôts / repositories

If you are using Synaptic go to Settings->Repositories->Other Software->Add. You will get a dialog that asks for an APT line.

Just enter
Code:
deb http://doc.hausser.ch/debpackages ubuntu-dha precise

Save, reload Synaptic, search for zygrib and version 6.02 should be there.

THANKS !!!!!
That worked almost too easily after spending several hours searching with Google and beating my head against a wall.
6.0.2 is installed and running again

Thanks again !
