Installing Allegro 4.4 on Ubuntu 22.04 Live USB

I've been trying to install Allegro 4.4 on Ubuntu and found this old question for Ubuntu 19.

Installing allegro 4.4 on ubuntu 19.10

I tried those commands which did not work for me today on 19.04, nor 22.04. I think the question/answer worked when posted, but is now outdated with regards to repositories.

Found this package which seems to me that it is actually available for 22.04, so I probably did something wrong when trying to install.

I have also searched online and in allegro docs and forums trying to find an up to date installation instruction, but I can't find one.

Does anyone know how to get Allegro 4.4 installed and running today on a recent Ubuntu system? Preferrably through apt but I'll try any other way if I can just find an instruction.

The commands in the linked post still work on Ubuntu 22.04.

The actual problem in my case was that I was using a Live USB flash drive, and it does not have the Universe repo enabled by default, so it has to be added first, by sudo add-apt-repository universe. After that, installation worked as described for 19.04.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
