Install Odoo 9 on Ubuntu 14.04

Hello everyone

Thanks to a script writing by André Schenkels, you can install Odoo 9 on Ubuntu easily just by runing the script and following the steps.

NB: You can create/run the script from any place/directory you want, for example right under /opt/

Open up an Ubuntu terminal and #sudo cd to the directory where you’d like to keep and run the script. for /opt case, we will do :

#sudo cd /opt

Then we create the file odoo_install.sh

#sudo nano odoo_install.sh

Next fill the file with this content :

When running this script, you will be asked to configure somethings.

For safety, make sure to change the Odoo super administrator password.

The next step is to make this file executable, to be able to execute it and everything will be installed automatically. To do this use :

#sudo chmod +x odoo_install.sh

And now you should execute the script by using:

./odoo_install.sh


Odoo will be installed automatically!

Important : Give this a while since it will need to download all dependencies, download Odoo and install it.

Browse to http://localhost:8069/ and you’ll see this screen:

Odoo 9

Congratulation ! you have finished 🙂

Liclipse (Eclipse) Installation on Ubuntu

Hello everyone

We will show you in this Tutorial how to Install LiClipse, the most popular Eclipse IDE.

LiClipse is the lightweight version of the most popular Eclipse IDE and it includes PyDev and Egit by default which will help python/django developers

The problem is that we cannot find this version in Ubuntu Software Center but we can install it easily if we follow the steps below

You can also watch this video that succinctly summarize the steps of this tutorial

Dowload LiClipse

Download latest version of LiClipse from the official website, for my case I choose LiClipse 3.0.1 for Linux (64 bits).

Install LiClipse

Go to your Download folder and extract Liclipse file:

#sudo tar xvzf liclipse_3.0.1_linux.gtk.x86.tar.gz

Move the extracted folder to /opt folder using the command

#sudo mv liclipse /opt

Now create a shortcut of LiClipse in the applications folder:

#sudo ln -s /opt/liclipse/LiClipse /usr/bin/liclipse

We have now installed LiCipse in our system. But we need to create a launcher for easier access. Paste the following command in terminal to create the launcher

#sudo nano /usr/share/applications/liclipse.desktop

Paste the following content in the file. NB: in my case I used the version 3.0.1, you should use the version you are working with.

[Desktop Entry]
Version=3.0.1
Name=LiClipse
Comment=IDE for Python/Django developers
Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 /opt/liclipse/LiClipse
Icon=/opt/liclipse/icon.xpm
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Utility;Application;Development;IDE

Rest of the content should not be changed. Save this file :

CTRL+O : To save the changes.
CTRL+X : To exit

Now have installed LiClipse successfully. You can now launch LiClipse from the Ubuntu dash menu

Liclipse

It can be locked in the launcher

lock to Launcher

Congratulations !! 🙂
