GTS and Gerris Debian packages are part of official Debian distributions (as well as their derivatives such as Ubuntu distributions in the 'universe' repository). Note that GfsView is not packaged by Debian yet. These 'official' packages are usually based on slightly older (~6 months) releases of Gerris.

For fresher releases, Debian packages are built automatically every day (whenever a new snapshot release is available) using the nice OpenSUSE build service system. The first time you install Gerris you need to:

  1. Get the key:
    wget http://gfs.sf.net/debian/popinet_key.asc
    sudo apt-key add popinet_key.asc
  2. Depending on your distribution, append the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list
    Debian 6.0 ('squeeze')
    deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/popinet/Debian_6.0 ./
    Debian 5.0 ('lenny')
    deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/popinet/Debian_5.0 ./
    Ubuntu 11.04 ('natty narwhal') and derivatives (Xubuntu, Kubuntu etc...)
    deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/popinet/xUbuntu_11.04 ./
    Ubuntu 10.10 ('maverick meerkat')
    deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/popinet/xUbuntu_10.10 ./
    Ubuntu 10.04 ('lucid lynx')
    deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/popinet/xUbuntu_10.04 ./
  3. For Ubuntu distributions you will also need to enable the 'universe' repository of Ubuntu. Either uncomment the corresponding line in /etc/apt/sources.list or use the graphical interface (e.g. "System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager" and/or "System -> Administration -> Software Sources").
  4. Update APT and install the packages:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install {gerris,gfsview}-snapshot

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 (this will also be done automatically when using the "Update manager" in Ubuntu/Debian).
