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 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

You can follow the instructions described in the previous section to install Deb-o-Matic on your system.
