Ubuntu/Debian packages are built automatically every day (whenever a new snapshot release is available). A Debian repository is available on the Gerris web site. The first time you install Gerris you need to:

  1. Add the GTS and Gerris debian repositories to your software sources
    % sudo -s
    % echo "deb http://gts.sourceforge.net/debian/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    % echo "deb http://gfs.sourceforge.net/debian/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    % exit
    
  2. Update the contents of the package database
    % sudo apt-get update
    
  3. Install the Gerris and GfsView snapshots (and their dependencies)
    % sudo apt-get install gerris-snapshot gfsview-snapshot
    

Note that these steps can also be done using the graphical tools (e.g. "synaptic package manager" and/or "software properties") in your Ubuntu/Debian desktop.

Your Gerris installation will subsequently be upgraded to the most recent version whenever you run

% sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

i.e. whenever your system updates are performed (again this will be done automatically when using the "Update manager" in Ubuntu/Debian).

Note for installation on Ubuntu 8.04

The debian packages for gerris-snapshot are built on an Ubuntu 7.10 system. To install them on an Ubuntu 8.04 system (Hardy Heron), the instructions above will work but you first need to download and install the following packages manually:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/libnetcdf3
http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/libgsl0

You can also alternatively install from source.
