If your distributions is not listed here, check out Building PySide on Linux for how to build PySide yourself from source. You might also want to build from source if the packages in your distribution are outdated.

This is the easiest way to get PySide installed on your Ubuntu system.

Didier, together with the PySide core dev team, maintains a PPA repository for Ubuntu. Currently, up-to-date packages are available for versions from 10.04 (Lucid) up to 11.10 (Oneiric). Python 3 experimental support is available for 11.04 (Natty) and 11.10 (Oneiric). Follow the instructions below to install PySide in your system in order to use it with Python 2.x .

Pyside is in the official Ubuntu repos for precise (12.04) onward. No ppa adding needed, just run

sudo apt-get install python3-pyside

For older releases, you need the ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pyside
sudo apt-get update

To install all the modules:

sudo apt-get install python-pyside

If you need just one module (e.g. PySide.QtGui) run a line like below. Be aware that any dependencies will be installed too.

sudo apt-get install python-pyside.qtgui

If you want to use PySide with Python3.x, replace python-pyside by python3-pyside

So to install all the PySide modules :

sudo apt-get install python3-pyside



Maintainer: Didier Raboud (OdyX)

To install PySide on Debian unstable perform the following commands as root (assuming you already have the unstable repository added to /etc/apt/sources.list):
