openerp Getting started with openerp Installating from source in a Debian/Ubuntu system


Detailed instructions on getting openerp set up or installed in Debian/Ubuntu.

To install from source code, we need Python 2.7, Git and a PostgreSQL database:

$ sudo apt-get install git python-pip python2.7-dev -y
$ sudo apt-get install postgresql -y
$ sudo su -c "createuser -s $(whoami)" postgres

Next we need some system dependencies, required by the Python packages used by Odoo:

$ sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev \
    libevent-dev libsasl2-dev libpq-dev \
    libpng12-dev libjpeg-dev \
    node-less node-clean-css -y

The Python dependencies are declared in the requirements.txt file:

$ wget
$ sudo -H pip install --upgrade pip
$ sudo -H pip install -r requirements.txt

Now you can get the source code from GitHub, and start create your first Odoo instance:

$ git clone -b 9.0 --depth=1
$ ./odoo/ -d myodoo
