Installation on Debian GNU/Linux

The Debian packages are available to enable automatic installation using apt-get.
Supported architecture are i386, amd64, armhf.

First, open a root shell or use sudo.

Add Patrick Chevalley's signature to APT:

apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys D79BF92A

Add a new source file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d
For the stable version do:

echo "deb http://www.ap-i.net/apt stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skychart.list 

If you want more frequent update with the development version do:

echo "deb http://www.ap-i.net/apt unstable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skychart.list 

Then refresh your package list, from a command line type:

apt-get update

To install the software with all the prerequisite and the additional data files:

apt-get install skychart

The prerequisite software are normally automatically installed. If not, check you have the packages libgtk2.0-0, libglib2.0-0, libpango1.0-0, libjpeg62, libpng12-0, libsqlite3-0, xplanet, indi, ffmpeg

That's all, exit the root shell and type skychart to run the program.

The update for a new version is done at the same time as the standard update for the other software of your distribution, normally once a week on Monday for the unstable release.

Other software you can install from this same repository are:
