Hi, Sven, thanks for your advice about compiling the program, I don't know if doing it, this will provoke any conflict with preexistent libraries and dependences... is it safe?

Yes, I agree it is a common problem with Linux distros that it's
sometimes difficult to upgrade only a single package. You have various

1) I believe the latest Ubuntu (19.04) ships with gretl 2019a. But I
understand you may not want to upgrade your system to a one-month-old
distro release.

2) Compile from source: This is relatively easy under Debian-based
distros such as Ubuntu. See appendix C in the user guide.

3) [not something you can do] If somebody had a PPA-style repository to
provide more recent gretl versions for Ubuntu/Mint/Debian, that would be
cool. But it involves some work, of course.
