While installable Nuxeo packages (DM, DAM, etc) are always available as platform-agnostic Zip files, Nuxeo is also making its packages available in other formats.
The first such alternate format is ".deb" packages for either Debian or Ubuntu Linux.
We've set up the necessary infrastructure, and worked with the Ubuntu community, so that you can add an official repository entry to your current list and install Nuxeo packages via the standard
apt-get install or
aptitude install commands.
Add one of the packages repositories to APT
There are currently three options for you:
Use the Ubuntu partner repository
This is the simplest option.
On your recent Debian or Ubuntu distribution, activate the "partner" repository from the package management GUI, or use the following command:
Use the Nuxeo PPA repository
Use the Nuxeo APT repository
This is the most flexible option (see the note below to understand why).
First, add the appropriate Debian/Ubuntu repository line to your
Then register the Nuxeo public key with your packaging system:
Update your apt cache
Verify that your setup is correct
Run the following search to check if the Nuxeo packages are visible form APT:
At this point, you can install the desired package with any of the standard Ubuntu package management tools. Since Nuxeo 5.5, all distributions (nuxeo-dam, nuxeo-dm, nuxeo-cmf, ...) have been unified into a unique "nuxeo" package; the specific features (dam, dm, cmf, ...) are now installable through the Nuxeo Marketplace.
Please note that the Ubuntu packages need the
sun-java6-jdk package, only available in the partners repository since Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat).
