How do I install ncurses on Ubuntu?

ncurses is needed by some software you may need to compile in your Linux, and before you install that software you need to install ncurses library.

If you are running Debian or Ubuntu, you can do it with this simple command on a terminal

sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev

That is all, you now have ncurses installed.
