< Bridge overview

Installing Bridge


A PPA is available:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bridge/daily
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install bridge

Bridge is designed to run at startup. Once installed, you need to log out and log in.

Or run it manually by executing

  • /opt/bridge/bridge-daemon

Installing from trunk

  • bzr branch lp:bridge

Then starting it:

  • ./bridge/bridge-daemon

Installing more Zeitgeist Data-Sources

The accuracy of Bridge is relative to the number of installed applications being able to notify Zeitgeist of their activity. In Ubuntu 12.04, only a few of them do it by default and it is recommended to install more Zeitgeist Data-Sources before installing the Bridge.

Browser extensions


The Firefox Zeitgeist extension, which is available from the previous method, can also be found packaged:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install zeitgeist-datasource-firefox


The Chrome/Chromium extension is available on the Chrome Web Store:
