In a previous post I wrote how to install Apache thrift on Windows. In this post I will guide you how to install Apache Thrift on Ubuntu 12.04.
  1. Install dependencies using the following command
    sudo apt-get install libboost-dev libboost-test-dev libboost-program-options-dev libevent-dev automake libtool flex bison pkg-config g++ libssl-dev  
  2. Download tar.gz archive from the this link, extract it in your home directory using this command
    tar -xvzf thrift-0.8.0.tar.gz  
  3. Change into the Thrift installation directory(the one extracted) and carry on the following command
    ./configure  
  4. Run the following command within Thrift installation directory
    make  
  5. After that carry on the following command
    sudo make install  
  6. To verify Thrift has installed properly, use the following command
    thrift -version
