DNScrypt question


Is it ok if i install DNScrypt from this website linuxandubuntu.com/home/how-to-encrypt-dns-traffic-in-linux-using-dnscrypt. Or is it better to go to the main website.

Thanks

It's always best to install from the distro repos. Try synaptic.

If it's marked in synaptic as "installed", then you don't need to install it. It's already installed.
