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. Append to /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/popinet/DISTRO ./

    where DISTRO is one of:

    Debian 5.0 ('lenny')
    Ubuntu 9.10 ('karmic koala') and derivatives (Xubuntu, Kubuntu etc...)
    Ubuntu 9.04 ('jaunty jackalope')
    Ubuntu 8.04 LTS ('hardy heron')

  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).
