I need to install Clang 4.0 and Clang++ 4.0 on my Ubuntu 14.04 box. The most recent version I can find in the apt-get package list is 3.5. How do I install 4.0?

I believe you can do it this way:

sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://apt.llvm.org/trusty/ llvm-toolchain-trusty-4.0 main"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install clang-4.0 lldb-4.0

This is based on the answer provided here updated to reflect the repositories found here.

  • To install latest stable in 2020 - sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://apt.llvm.org/llvm.sh)"
