Midnight Commander is a very popular file manager for Linux operating systems. In this article I will tell you how to install MC in version 4.8.11 on Ubuntu OS.

First of all check if you already have MC installed (and if yes, what is its version). If your current version is older, remove it. Open terminal and type:

sudo apt-get remove mc

Now just add new repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/ppa

Update everything:

sudo apt-get update

and finally install Midnight Commander in newest version:

sudo apt-get install mc
