Installing Typo on Debian and Ubuntu

ook edited this page Jul 6, 2011 · 3 revisions

To get Typo running on Debian or Ubuntu, you first need to install some packages to get to the point where rubygems works:

sudo apt-get install ruby1.8 ruby1.8-dev rubygems1.8

You will also need some development packages to install some of the gems Typo depends on:

sudo apt-get install libxslt1-dev

Finally, install the development packages for the database you want to use, either:

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev, for MySQL


sudo apt-get install libpq-dev, for PostgreSQL


sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev, for SQLite3.

Next, install bundler:

sudo gem install bundler

Now, you're all set to follow the instructions in Installing Typo.

Note: If you're going to use passenger, its installer will guide you through installing its dependencies.

Note2: If you can, uninstall rake provided by Debian/Ubuntu: that version is far too old, and rake will be installed via bundler
