To install the nightly build add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://deb.eprints.org/3.2/ nightly/
deb-src http://deb.eprints.org/3.2/ source/


Installing Eprints via apt-get

To install Eprints and all its dependencies execute the following:

apt-get update
apt-get install eprints

Setting up a Repository

You should now have a working installation of eprints in /usr/share/eprints3/. Please follow the on-screen instructions to set up an eprints repository. You probably want to start with (as root):

su eprints
cd
./bin/epadmin create
logout
a2ensite eprints3
apache2ctl restart

Known issues with the Debian/Ubuntu package can be found at Debian Known Issues.

Getting and Compiling from Source (not required)

To install dependencies and retrieve the Eprints source execute the following:

apt-get update
apt-get build-dep eprints
apt-get source eprints

The source will be saved to a tarball in the current directory.
