Installation on Ubuntu using apt-get

We provide .deb packages for Ubuntu 21.10, 20.04 (LTS), 18.04 (LTS), and 16.04 (LTS). These packages work on 64-Bit installations. These packages can be used to setup Secondo within a few minutes on your computer. We recommend this installation type for new users, who want to gain first experience with the Secondo system. For advanced users, who want to develop their own extensions, we recommend to install the Secondo-SDK.

Installation of Secondo

To install Secondo via apt-get, add the Secondo repository to your sources.list. This must be done using the root account. Note that the sudo command does not work with redirecting into files. To get the root account, enter:
sudo su -l root
After that extend your repository list by entering:

Ubuntu 21.10
echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
Ubuntu 20.04
echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
Ubuntu 18.04
echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
Ubuntu 16.04
echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
Update the list of the available packages:
apt-get update
Install Secondo and all required dependencies:
apt-get install secondo

Afterwards, each Secondo component can be started from any directory by typing in the appropriate command. The programs that can be started are: Do not start more than one instance of Server or Single User programs accessing the same database directory. For details see the User Manual.
