apt-get install mist respectively.

Mist depends on the following external libraries to be installed:
First install GMP & Readline from repositories:
sudo apt-get install -y libgmp3-dev libreadline6-dev
Second, follow the instructions for Building Qt

go get -u github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/cmd/mist
(You may need to run "sudo apt-get install mercurial" first)
