Installing Musescore 2.0 on 32-bit on LXLE

I'm having an issue with getting Musescore 2.0 for LXLE 32-bit. I added the ppa, but 2.0 is not there in synaptic after running
sudo apt-get update
I then tried building from source. I went to this site: and I got stuck after installing Qt5. After completing:
echo "PATH=~/Qt5.3.2/5.3.2/gcc/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
source  ~/.bashrc
and ran
sudo apt-get install git cmake
I got this in my terminal:
Command 'sudo' is available in '/usr/bin/sudo'
The command could not be located because '/usr/bin' is not included in the PATH environment variable.
sudo: command not found
Thank you in advance.

For the echo blah blah line, I used instead:
echo "PATH=/home/USER/Programs/Qt5.4.2/5.4/gcc:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc

this is VERY ODD
echo "PATH=/home/USER/Programs/Qt5.4.2/5.4/gcc:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
your user name you set up at the time of install is the all cap " USER "

ODD , but if you must

also user you made a folder in your users USER folder called "Programs "

also a bit odd but if you want

echo "PATH=~/Qt5.3.2/5.3.2/gcc/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
that is NOT the same as here
this is a different location without the "Programs" folder that user made

now did you notice to OPERATING SYSTEM NAME on the page you linked to
Ubuntu 12.04

are YOU USING this old OS ?
the current is Ubuntu 15.04

you have Mint under your name

-- WHAT version of mint ?

and those instructions are for the 3 year OLD 12.04

if not
qt5 is likely IN your software repos

WHY DID YOU NOT !!! use the instructions NO the "musescore" git page"
make release
sudo make install
the instructions you are trying to use are very out of date

My main linux system in my laptop running Linux Mint 17.1. Musescore 2.0 was easy to install on that. My issue is installing it on my OLD desktop running LXLE 32-bit (A Ubuntu based OS). Everything went haywire when I issued:
source ~/.bashrc
I assume this command told Bash to read the Path locations here instead of where ever previously. I need to switch this back.
I used USER as a place holder for my real username on my computer.
