Install failing on Ubuntu 12.04/AMD64

I have tried to install GNU Radio on my Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64 laptop.

Reading http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/InstallingGR
I
have run:

$ sudo apt-get install gnuradio
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Package gnuradio 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 ‘gnuradio’ has no installation candidate

Looking on
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=all&section=all&arch=any&keywords=Gnuradio&searchon=namesit
seems that the gnuadio package is not available for the precise
(12.04)
version of Ubuntu. This would explain the error I got. Is this correctly
interpreted?

I have been searching the net to see if I could find any solutions. I
found
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20041366/unable-to-locate-package-gnuradio-ubuntu-12-04which
might be same problem, although the poster doesn’t show his output
from . The suggested solution is to ettus repositories. This seems to be
a
case of symptom treatment when the installation guide indicates that
gnuradio already should be in the standard repository.

I could try to build from source, but since installing from a package
repository is recommended at
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/InstallingGRFromSource
I
am still pursuing this approach.

If the reason for my problems is that there are no package for 12.04 the
documentation should really be updated to reflect this.

Cheers

For Ubuntu, it’s in “Universe”, which if you don’t have installed,
apt-get won’t see it.

But this raises a kind of meta-point. How is the Gnu Radio project
supposed to keep track of each of dozens of Linux distributions that
may, or
may not, package the Gnu Radio software, and may, entirely at their
pleasure
obsolete those packages, or move them around?

It’s not the members of the Gnu Radio project who (in general) package
Gnu Radio for distribution “foo”, but rather the “packaging team” for
distribution “foo”. We may, or may not, get any kind of
communication or feedback from those packagers about Gnu Radio–which
versions they’ve
packaged, whether they’ve packaged it at all, etc, etc.
