Ubuntu / Debian Packages


The current version of the Linux and Mac OS packages do not support file encryption. As of this version of OpenIZ, local encryption is only supported on the Windows platform.


  • Auto-backup of configuration and disaster recover when applet manifests are corrupted on the device
  • Faster import of larger datasets using in-memory copying of SQLite data
  • Additional stability enhancements including ordering of participations on acts
  • Minimal OpenIZ.exe.config for oizdt allowing the BRE debugging and Protocol Debugger to run without hand-writing a configuration
  • Linux tarballs and self-contained ZIP of the SDK.

SDK On Linux & Mac OS

In order to run the SDK you will first need to install the Mono Framework v.5.0.1 (4.x should work as well, but this was only tested with 5.x). The tools in the tarball are then used as they are in Windows, except they are prefixed with the mono command. For example instead of

oizdt --tool=Debug --operation=BusinessRule

You would instead run

mono oizdt.exe --tool=Debug --operation=BusinessRule

BETA - Ubuntu Debian Packages

This release also contains two previews of the debian packages for the OpenIZ Disconnected Cllient. The disconnected client is written in GTK+ and uses WebKit. The packages have been tested on the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and derivatives (Xubuntu)

To install

sudo dpkg -i openizdc_0.9.7_amd64.deb 
sudo apt-get install -f

The icon for the disconnected client will be created in the "Other" program group from your launcher. Note that you may have to upgrade your version of mono to 5.x. If this is the case, use the following commands:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/ubuntu xenial main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
