sudo su in a terminal window and then sudo apt-get install postgis postgresql-9.1 That should work.

Nope because you get PostGIS1.5 not 2.0 –  Mille Bii Feb 20 '13 at 19:23
1.5 is better for functionality currently, I believe. "•The DebianGIS project has built PostGIS in the past, but is currently not very up-to-date." –  lewis Feb 20 '13 at 19:24
Didn't know, do you have some reference where I can make up my mind. So maybe I'll stay 1.5 –  Mille Bii Feb 20 '13 at 19:26
You could go unstable repostiory like you do for gis builds on ubuntu/debian. –  lewis Feb 20 '13 at 19:28
Yes but being newbie in this, I wonder how unstable/stable is ubuntuGIS –  Mille Bii Feb 20 '13 at 19:32
