You will need to patch the etherpad code to build on Ubuntu: Etherpad will not build or run with openjdk-6-jdk or openjdk-6-jre. It also is best to use Sun's jar since fastjar seems to have some issues.

Type Y because you trust the Etherpad foundation. :)

Now for some mysql magic.

First, you would check if this is necesary to do checking if the user ''etherpad'' already exists.

This document describes how to install Etherpad from Etherpad.org's repositories or, if you are inclined to do so, building it from its source code and installing it.

Installing Etherpad from Etherpad.org's repository

Install Java, MySQL and Scala required packages

Install pre-requisite packages for getting and building Etherpad.

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk scala mysql-server mysql-client libmysql-java git-core

Etherpad will not build or run with openjdk-6-jdk or openjdk-6-jre. It also is best to use Sun's jar since fastjar seems to have some issues.

If you get this error:

Package sun-java6-jdk is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package sun-java6-jdk has no installation candidate

Checkout /etc/apt/sources.list and add this line if missing:

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy multiverse

For Lucid you have to activate the partner repository

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner

Then

apt-get update

and try again.

It is necessary to ensure that the server's host name is in the /etc/hosts for the IP 127.0.0.1 . If this is not there you will have a compile time error like this :

"Unable to establish connection to compilation daemon

  • Compilation failed."

update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

Installing the Etherpad package

There is now an apt source that you can put in your /etc/apt/sources.list http://wiki.github.com/ether/pad/installation-instructions-ii

sudo echo "deb http://apt.etherpad.org all ." >> /etc/apt/sources.list

sudo echo "deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy multiverse" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Then do the following commands

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install etherpad

You will get the following message.

$ apt-get install etherpad

Build from source

If you want the latest an greatest from the etherpad foundation you have to use git. Don't worry git is super cool and easy.

$cd ~
$git clone git@github.com:ether/pad.git
