how to install Neovim under Ubuntu

Under Manjaro I installed neovim with yaourt. It installed version 0.1.4 and it works fine. For Ubuntu, the home page of Neovim suggests a PPA but it installed for me the version 0.1.5-dev, which is a development version.

How to install a specific version under Ubuntu (namely 0.1.4 in this case)?

Visit https://github.com/neovim/neovim and find the tagged version 0.1.4. Download the zip, uncompress it, and enter the project folder.

Install the dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install libtool autoconf automake cmake libncurses5-dev g++

Build and install the project:

$ make cmake
$ make test
$ sudo make install

It’s a good idea to install the “neovim” Python package too:

$ sudo pip2 install neovim
$ sudo pip3 install neovim
