    what happens when you enter "sudo aptitude install boinc-client boinc-manager" in the command prompt?

    Try to search for it in Synaptic (System > Administration > "Synaptic Package Manager")

    If not, perhaps you are missing dependancies, and the package manager is failing to resolve them automatically.

    Are you using 64bit Ubuntu? If you are, try this:

    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libstdc++6 freeglut3

    that did the trick for me,and i wonder why it doesnt work,im not that used to ubuntu till now^^

    there is also a manual way, which will allow you to also use the newest versions.
    in this example the download folder is named "Downloads"and found directly in the root
    the Boinc File is named in this example: "boinc_x.y.z_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh"
    download boinc from the site and execute this in the command prompt, but change the file and the folder according to your system ;)

    cd ~/Downloads
    sh ./boinc_x.y.z_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh

    now you make a new home for your boinc with:

    sudo mkdir /opt/Boinc

    after that, the file is unpacked in the "Downloads" folder and you have to copy all of them to /opt/boinc with:

    sudo cp -r ~/Downloads/BOINC/* /opt/Boinc

    the next command adds all boinc files and directories to the user "Boinc"

    sudo chown -hR boinc:boinc /opt/Boinc

    Now the Start Script needs to know where boinc is located, to be able to start it as service upon boot. Therefore you edit /etc/default/boinc-client with an editor with root access

    the original storage location gets marked out with a # like that:
    #BOINC_CLIENT="/usr/bin/boinc"

    then you write the new location

    BOINC_CLIENT="/opt/Boinc/boinc"

    should look like this:

    as last step, you start boinc with:

    sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start

    if my post was not helpful enough, here is the original i just translated from german:

    Boinc Manuell

    hope i could help ;)

    I hope you can get BOINC running on your Ubuntu rig, CP. We need your support to be successful in our bid for world domination...I mean crunching prowess.

    I'll hopefully receive my i7 in six weeks time. I can't wait to see what I'll pull with it. Of course, this is only the processor. I need to purchase everything else after the fact.
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    So, I almost have all the parts for my dedicated folding/crunching rig together. However, there are a few small things I'm missing. Maybe someone could help me out:
    2 x 120mm fans (both should be identical so I can out them in push/pull around the radiator of my Eco Coolit for the Q6600

    Rig specs:

    MSI P7N SLI Motherboard
    Intel Q6600 + Eco Coolit Liquid cooling system (hopefully it OCs well with this)
    2 x 1Gb Patriot RAM + 1GB Mushkin RAM
    2 x Asus GTX 470 + 8800

    @ xbonez

    I got fans, but not identical ones bro :( If you want them though just let me know. I should still have two left.

    EDIT: What I'm probably going to do is just go to Tiger Direct tomorrow and pick up the cheapest HDD they have just to get the PC running. I'm done with UBUNTU! :laugh:

    Yes I meant a container full off PSUs. It seems like a lot people have problems with poor quality PSUs myself included. My Corsair will be replaced by a decent Enermax that next time I place an order in Germany.
