Given below is a screenshot of Miro in use:

The version of Miro in the repositories of Ubuntu is a dated one. But its very much functional and bug free. So if you want you can install it from the Ubuntu Software Center.

But if you want the very latest version, you will have to install the software repo for Miro. Its very easy to do so.

How to install :

Go to System > Administration > Software Sources

Now click on the "Other Software" tab and then "Add" the following line (whichever is applicable):

Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10)

deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/pculture.org/miro/linux/repositories/ubuntu karmic/

Mind you this is for Ubuntu 9.10. If you're using some other version of Ubuntu, see below:

Jaunty (9.04):

deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/pculture.org/miro/linux/repositories/ubuntu jaunty/

Intrepid (8.10): (amd64 or i386)

Note: Miro 2.5.4 is the last release supported on Intrepid.

deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/pculture.org/miro/linux/repositories/ubuntu intrepid/

Hardy LTS (8.04): (amd64 or i386)

Note: Miro 2.5.4 is the last release supported on Hardy.

deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/pculture.org/miro/linux/repositories/ubuntu hardy/

After that, simply close and reload the repositories. Now that the repositories are updated, you can install Miro from the Ubuntu software CEnter itself and get the very latest version.

Or you can use the terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install miro
