+To install the GNU Taler Ubuntu packages, first ensure that you have
+the right Ubuntu distribution. At this time, the packages are built for
+Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa).
+A typical ``/etc/apt/sources.list`` file for this setup
+would look like this:
+.. code-block::
+   deb focal main restricted
+   deb focal-updates main restricted
+   deb focal-security main restricted
+   deb focal universe restricted
+   deb focal-updates universe restricted
+   deb focal-security universe restricted
+   deb focal multiverse restricted
+   deb focal-updates multiverse restricted
+   deb focal-security multiverse 
+   deb focal-fossa main
+The last line is crucial, as it adds the GNU Taler packages.
+Next, you must import the Taler Systems SA public package signing key
+into your keyring and update the package lists:
+.. code-block:: console
+   # wget -O - | apt-sign add -
+   # apt update
+.. note::
+   You may want to verify the correctness of the Taler Systems key out-of-band.
+Now your system is ready to install the official GNU Taler binary packages
+using apt.
