Is it better to compile from source or to install from a .deb package?






I've just installed conky from a source code, the advantage that I see is that I have the newest version (1.9 instead of 1.8 from repo). The disadvantage - to uninstall I have to remove sth from /usr/ I think, but I'm not sure. Are there any other disadvantages/advantages?

Well i can say compiling from source is an unsupported method of installing software because it bypasses the Package Management System (APT, USC) completely.



Also it affects system Stability, could break other dependencies . Since Ubuntu Packagers makes sure its all round effectiveness and integration to current system remains intact , therefore installing from official Repositories is recommended.



Also for further reading , refer this and this.
