If you want to use some of new cool Maven 3 features on your Ubuntu then there is a simple instruction explaining how you can achieve that.

First we need to add a custom PPA repository to the list of authorized system software sources:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:natecarlson/maven3

And press Enter key one more time for confirmation of adding PPA. Then all we need is run this command:
