Hey there...

You have to download the source of the wallet... and compile the source code yourself

search for "building litecoin wallet from source linux" on google... there are plenty of guides on how to do that... and dogecoin is basically the same...

if you need really more help write again...


cheers

I compiled and packaged the wallet on Mint 13, should be compatible at least with Ubuntu 12.04 perhaps other versions too

32bit version only right now

How do we get your build into a repo?

This was a one-time, completely manually done DEB file by compiling the github sources, adding there manually the icon file, menu shortcut etc. I don't even have a PPA on Launchpad, nor am I capable of becoming a regular maintainer of such a package, even for multiple architectures. In order to put a package into a repository, even the PPA, it would need to be able to maintain it somehow.

This way it is on the risk of anyone who downloads it, and installs it from the local file that is also rather simple, at least Mint and Ubuntu offer a GUI for one-click installing such packages, or it could be done by running sudo dpkg -i packagename in terminal window.

First of all, the sources in the github repository should have the standard "configure-make-make install" scripts, how it seems to me that the last one is missing. The "make install" should move the binaries to proper places, add an icon to /usr/share/icons or somewhere like that, add a .desktop link so it appears in the app menu. Then it is much easier to just not run "make install" but "checkinstall" and some kind of a DEB package exists - from this point making a script that regularly clones the actual github sources, runs the scripts and uploads the result to let's say nightbuilds on PPA is a realistic option.
