+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.d/taler.list`` file for this setup
+would look like this:
+
+.. code-block::
+
+ deb https://deb.taler.net/apt/ubuntu/ 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 - https://taler.net/taler-systems.gpg.key | apt-key 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.
