Right now, the only PPAs that I can seem to find for Guake aren't official PPAs for the Guake project, nor do they have the latest version of Guake in them (the latest in Ubuntu 18.04 is v3.0.5).

It would be awesome if the project had it's own official PPA repo where the latest releases would be posted so that we can all get the latest updates immediately and without doing manual installations/builds.

Agreed. In fact, guake 3.0.5 in Ubuntu 18.04 is broken - it cannot close tabs, for example. And maintainers are just retarded and not updating repositories.

Having current and official packages would be awesome.

Even the version for 18.10 is also not the latest. An official ppa would be awesome !!

Would much prefer a snap package that works on any Linux distribution and is immune to distribution upgrades.

// , How do I install from a PPA? Also, does this have an AppImage?

Want the same thing!

PPA, .deb, .AppImage, something to get a version that works with Linux Mint 19 please.

Hi. I would welcome anyone serious that is motivated to build this PPA. You can still try to install guake from pip: pip install guake

Hi. I created a Guake PPA for Ubuntu 19.04, 18.10 and 18.04 / Linux Mint 19.x:

Thanks @logix2, I'm sure many will use this. However I very much prefer not to install unofficial PPAs. I would really like to see an official PPA from and maintained by the Guake team.

If Guake was given an install file for LinuxBrew/Homebrew it would be available for MacOS and any flavour of Linux, not just Ubuntu. Should be pretty simple :)
