Installing Endrov on Linux

From Endrov

First-time users of Endrov on Linux better install from the repository. This works on Ubuntu and Debian. Ubuntu is usually the best tested distribution, but since it lags behind Debian on many packages, Debian should work too.


Ubuntu / Debian: Stable releases

Go to the the stable directory and download the latest .deb-file. Just click the file and your package manager will appear. You may have to install additional packages.

For older Ubuntu / Debian

In addition to the instructions below, you may have to install JInput from a newer release.

Ubuntu 11 and Debian squeeze have these already.

Installing from source

Recommended if you intend to develop new plugins

1. First install the repository version - it will pull down all dependencies, some which are not in Ubuntu/Debian. Make sure it runs!

2. Follow the instructions to Setting up a development environment.

Endrov on other flavours of Linux/Unix

Download the ZIP-file provided for Windows/Mac. Start Endrov from the console.

Starting Endrov from the console

This is if you installed Endrov into one directory; either you downloaded the .zip or the source. Enter the base directory and type

java -jar startEndrov.jar

Ubuntu / Debian: Automatic updates CURRENTLY NOT MAINTAINED

The following command adds Endrov's repository to Ubuntu/Debian. Packages are not signed as of writing.

Run in the Terminal (Applications → Accessories → Terminal):

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/endrov.list && sudo apt-get --quiet update

or, if you prefer doing this by hand, inspect the file for the content to add in /etc/apt/sources.list. Next, to actually install Endrov and all packages, type this:

sudo apt-get install endrov

or do it from (System → Administration → Synaptic Package Manager).

To add movie-making support on Linux, install the ffmpeg package with (System → Administration → Synaptic Package Manager).

Endrov can be started from (Applications → Graphics → Endrov).
