If you just want to try GeoNode, it is recommended to use Ubuntu 10.04 and install the latest stable release:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:geonode/release sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install geonode
If instead, you are interested in doing development on the source code, here are the instructions for Ubuntu 12.04:
# Python native dependencies sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv python-imaging python-lxml # Java dependencies sudo apt-get install -y --force-yes openjdk-6-jdk ant maven2 --no-install-recommends # Supporting tools sudo apt-get install -y git gettext # Create virtualenv and activate it virtualenv venv --system-site-packages source venv/bin/activate # Clone GeoNode and switch to dev branch git clone https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode.git -b dev # Install GeoNode in the local virtualenv pip install -e geonode --use-mirrors cd geonode # Compile GeoServer paver setup # Start the servers paver start
Windows Development Build Instructions:
Prerequisites: # Java JDK # Python 2.6+ # ant (bin directory must be on system PATH) # maven2 (bin directory must be on system PATH) # Python distutils (easy_install) # git # Install and configure from the windows command prompt If you don't already have python virtualenv installed, then do it now: easy_install virtualenv # Create virtualenv and activate it cd <Directory to install the virtualenv & geonode into> virtualenv venv venv\scripts\activate # Install Python native dependencies easy_install PIL lxml==2.3 # this command will look for and install binary distributions (pip install will attempt to build and fail) # Clone GeoNode and switch to dev branch git clone https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode.git -b dev # Install GeoNode in the local virtualenv pip install -e geonode --use-mirrors cd geonode # Compile GeoServer paver setup # Start the servers # This WON'T work on windows without changes to pavement.py # and a windows batch script for starting jetty paver start
Once fully started, you should see a message indicating the address of your geonode.

--system-site-packages option is
not required. If not enabled, the bootstrap script will sandbox your virtual
environment from any packages that are installed in the system, useful if
you have incompatible versions of libraries such as Django installed
system-wide. On the other hand, most of the times it is useful to use a version of
the Python Imaging Library provided by your operating system
vendor, or packaged other than on PyPI. When in doubt, however, just leave
this option out.
