OpenACS/.LRN for Ubuntu
Packages of OpenACS and .LRN are now available for Ubuntu Linux. We hope to facilitate the adoption by novices and the infrastructure deployment by professional users, both running Debian GNU/Linux and its derivates. This is an on-going effort. Beware, our packaging activity explicitly targets Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) and further versions. Important dependencies are co-maintained with the Debian Tcl/Tk Maintainers.
See also OpenACS for Debian.
Please, review the section on supported distributions first. Currently, the core packages (openacs, dotlrn) are included into the Universe Ubuntu repository.
Release packages for Ubuntu 10.04 and Further
