How to install BOINC on Linux (Ubuntu).

So far, i only instructions for installing on linux (Ubuntu) as

sudo aptitude install boinc-client boinc-manager

But aptitude didn't work for me on Linux(Ubuntu). So I used:
sudo apt-get install boinc-client boinc-manager

By running BOINC (World Community Grid project), you help scientist (with your spare CPU cycles) to do research on cancer, HIV, Ebola, Zika and other researches.

How you can help Cancer, Ebola, HIV, Zeka and other research.

What's most interesting is anyone with a computer can help.
1. All you do is install and run the BOINC program.
2. Then go to http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ to sign up for an account.
3. Then in BOINC program click Add project. Select "World Community Grid" project.
4. Next screen use login info from step 2 to log in.
5. The program will download work load from World Community Grid project and work away at it.

I think it's amazing that anyone with absolutely no knowledge about these diseases can just help with their computer processing time. I already installed it on my windows laptop, my linux laptop, my uncle's linux laptop, and his windows (vista) chess playing laptop. So i got 4 machines helping now. Very exciting.
