In this tutorial I’ll show you how to install the PeerGuardian Linux (pgl) on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy, 13.04 Raring, 12.04 Precise using ppa repository.

PeerGuardian Linux (pgl) is a privacy oriented firewall application. It blocks connections to and from hosts specified in huge blocklists (thousands or millions of IP ranges). Its origin seeds in targeting aggressive IPs while you use P2P.

PeerGuardian Linux is actively developed. However the team is very small and with few spare time. Contributors are welcome! Check out http://peerguardian.sourceforge.net.

A ppa repository has been created to make it easy to install for Ubuntu and Linux Mint users. Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal, then follow the below steps:

1.) Run this command in terminal to add the ppa repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jre-phoenix/ppa

2.) Update the package lists to make it available:

sudo apt-get update

3.) Finally instal it:

sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd pglgui

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    pgld : Depends: libnetfilter-queue1 (>= 0.0.15) but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Package pgld is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package ‘pgld’ has no installation candidate
    E: Unable to locate package pglcmd
    E: Unable to locate package pglgui
