Installation on Debian GNU/Linux

The Debian packages are available to enable automatic installation using aptitude or apt-get.

First, become root or use sudo on each command.

Add Patrick Chevalley's signature to APT:

apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys D79BF92A

Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list to add the following line:

deb stable main 

If you want more frequent update with the development version add the following line:

deb unstable main

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

aptitude update

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

aptitude -r install skychart

To install only the minimal software without the prerequisite:

aptitude -R 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.
