Specification - Debian Package

Qsicon inprogress.png This article is work in progress.


This page is for describing and tracking efforts to package Gephi for Debian and Ubuntu. An initial package is available at https://launchpad.net/~rockclimb/+archive/ppa however this would not be accepted into Debian or Ubuntu as the source tarball contains binary only jar files. These must all be separately packaged.

Currently Netbeans 6.9 is in Ubuntu, but Debian only has Netbeans 6.0, so even once the packaging of all the libraries is done we will only be able to package for Ubuntu until Netbeans 6.9 is in Debian. Work is underway to do this, see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=543907

Get Involved

If you'd like to help package Gephi for Debian and Ubuntu then get in touch with Andy.

The result of the current effort can be seen on Andy's Debian QA Page.

Dependency Status

The following jar files are included in the Gephi source tarball. The current packaging status is shown. This list is almost certainly not complete, since some of the unpackaged libraries will have further dependencies.

Note: added a "version" column, to highlight the need for precision version tracking, and to answers questions like "which version of Processing is used in Gephi, that I could call from my plugin? Where can I get this kind of information?"
