Installation from Debian/Ubuntu repository¶
Deb-o-Matic is available in Debian and Ubuntu repositories, so you can launch the following command to install Deb-o-Matic on your system:
sudo apt-get install debomatic
Depending on your Debian or Ubuntu release, you could not have the latest version. It is usually suggested to use the latest one to obtain new features and bugfixes. You may want to check Deb-o-Matic home page from time to time to see whether a new release is available.
Installation of the release tarball¶
If the version in Debian/Ubuntu repositories is not the one you are looking for, you can download a release tarball from Deb-o-Matic download page.
Unpack the release tarball, enter the new created directory, and launch the following command:
sudo python3 setup.py install
If everything went smoothly, you should be able to launch debomatic from your terminal’s command line.
Installation of Git snapshots¶
If you want to test bleeding-edge features, or want to be always up-to-date with the latest and greatest Deb-o-Matic versions, you can download development snapshots directly from upstream Git repository. Open a terminal and launch the following command:
git clone https://github.com/debomatic/debomatic.git
You can follow the instructions described in the previous section to install Deb-o-Matic on your system.
