Ubuntu PPAs

To install LibrePlan in Ubuntu (Ubuntu Quantal 12.10, Ubuntu Precise 12.04 or Ubuntu Lucid 10.04) you just need to run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreplan/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libreplan


If you do not have add-apt-repository command, you will need to install python-software-properties before running the previous commands. You can do it with the following line:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties


In Ubuntu Quantal 12.10 you will need to install software-properties-common too:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common


Once installed, to use the application you must type in the web browser the following URL: http://localhost:8080/libreplan/


The use of this installation method, based on Ubuntu PPAs, has the advantage that, when a new version of LibrePlan package is released, you are automatically informed about it thanks to the Ubuntu update manager system.


To update to a new version, if you have already installed LibrePlan you should execute the following commands:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libreplan
