QGIS 2.2 on Ubuntu Trusty Tahr 14.04

QGIS on Ubuntu Trusty Tahr

I’ve have started working nearly 100%, outside of work, in Ubuntu.  I was running Ubuntu 13.10 so naturally I decided to upgrade to 14.04.  My experience has been positive for the most part, but after the upgrade I was having issues with my install of QGIS 2.2.  Python – QGIS was not installing so I was not able to install any Plugins So after some digging I finally discovered that my “Software & Updates” repository for QGIS was still pointing to the Saucy Salamander (Ubuntu 13.10) package. So I changed my repository to the Trusty Tahr (Ubuntu 14.04), and then I opened the terminal and re-installed QGIS with:

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install qgis
$sudo apt-get install python-qgis

And then VOLIÀ!  I opened QGIS Desktop and I could add Plugins again. Hope this info helps to get Plugins working in QGIS on Ubuntu 14.04!
