Installing Unifi v3 on Debian Wheezy

This post is specific to installing the current stable (3.2.1) release of the Unifi controller software on Debian Wheezy.

Edit your sources.list file and add the following line.

deb http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/unifi/distros/deb/debian debian

Add the GPG key

sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv C0A52C50

Update your repos

sudo apt-get update

Install the v3 of Unifi

sudo apt-get install unifi-rapid

Note: If you already have v2 installed, you can simply remove unifi and then install unifi-rapid. That will upgrade your current config (at least it did for me).

Gwibber

What is Gwibber? Well, quoted from their website:

Gwibber is an open source microblogging client for GNOME developed with Python and GTK. It supports Twitter, Jaiku, Identi.ca, Facebook, and Digg.

I only learned of this app ths morning, but was interested in checking it out because if it’s new support for identi.ca.

I’ve constructed a quick HOWTO about getting it installed on Arch Linux, but I’m sure the instructions could be modified easily enough to get it working on most distros.

Up and running on Ubuntu 7.10 RC1

Well, I was able to use the live cd and get the the system installed with no issues, unlike my last experience with Beta 3. Everything with this release is looking pretty good. Although, I still think Ubuntu performance is pretty slow compared to some other distros. I’m really looking forward to the final release so I can install it on my laptop and see if video works better than it does in 7.04.

I got Gutsy Beta to install, but I had to use the alternative install CD

After redownloading the live install CD and verifying MD5SUMs, the install still hung at the partitioner stage. So I downloaded the alternative install image and was able to get it to install. Since installing, I haven’t had a single stability issue with it. It’s looking like a nice update to Feisty, but overall I wouldn’t say there is anything really ground breaking about it.

We’re only 15 days away from the final release and I am looking forward to installing it on my laptop to see if video driver issues become of thing of the past.

I saw you searching for Kenosha Linux

I was reviewing my referer logs this morning and saw that someone came here searching google for Kenosha Linux. Now that person is either searching for a distribution call Kenosha Linux, or more than likely looking info on other people in Kenosha who use Linux. Well, you found one. Feel free to contact me if you wish.

I’m still very interested in helping to start a Kenosha Area Linux Users Group.
