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 echo "deb http://gts.sourceforge.net/debian/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    % sudo echo "deb http://gfs.sourceforge.net/debian/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
  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).
