I installed Linux Mint 19 64 bit in a virtual machine real quick to test 
this out. Here's what I did to get it to install and work:

The same instructions below will work on Ubuntu 18.04

>From the install instructions <http://weewx.com/docs/debian.htm>:

wget -qO - http://weewx.com/keys.html | sudo apt-key add -
wget -qO - http://weewx.com/apt/weewx.list | sudo tee 
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/weewx.list

Having these keys loaded will allow you to do an apt upgrade in the future 
when necessary. 


Then install the Python PIL package, download the development version of 
weewx, and install the development version of weewx. 

sudo apt update

sudo apt install python-pil

wget http://weewx.com/downloads/development_versions/weewx_3.8.1-1_all.deb

sudo apt install ./weewx_3.8.1-1_all.deb


Once you complete the install and entering in your station data, run this 
command to make sure it's working:

sudo systemctl status weewx


You should see something similar to the below. They key thing to look at is 
"Active: active (running)"

‚óŹ weewx.service - LSB: weewx weather system
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/weewx; generated)
   Active: active (running) since Sat 2018-08-11 15:34:42 EDT; 2min 15s ago


Hope this helps!
