2.2. Ubuntu Packages¶
There are ready made packages for Ubuntu.
Packages of older releases of privacyIDEA up to version 2.23 are available for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from a public ppa repository 1. Using these is deprecated.
For recent releases of privacyIDEA starting from version 3.0 a repository is available which provides packages for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, 18.04 LTS and 20.04LTS 2.
that you want to run a privacyIDEA system. These packages deactivate all
other (default) websites. Instead, you may install the package
privacyidea-mysql to install the privacyIDEA application and setup the
database without any webserver configuration. After this, you can integrate
privacyIDEA with your existing webserver configuration.
Read about the upgrading process in Upgrading a packaged installation.
2.2.1. Installing privacyIDEA 3.0 or higher¶
Before installing privacyIDEA 3.0 or upgrading to 3.0 you need to add the repository.
184.108.40.206. Add repository¶
The packages are digitally signed. First you need to download the signing key:
On Ubuntu 16.04 check the fingerprint of the key:
gpg --with-fingerprint NetKnights-Release.asc
On 18.04 and 20.04 you need to run:
gpg --import --import-options show-only --with-fingerprint NetKnights-Release.asc
The fingerprint of the key is:
pub 4096R/AE250082 2017-05-16 NetKnights GmbH <firstname.lastname@example.org> Key fingerprint = 0940 4ABB EDB3 586D EDE4 AD22 00F7 0D62 AE25 0082
Now add the signing key to your system:
apt-key add NetKnights-Release.asc
Now you need to add the repository for your release (either xenial/16.04LTS, bionic/18.04LTS, focal/20.04LTS)
You can do this by running the command:
As an alternative you can add the repo in a dedicated file. Create a new
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/privacyidea-community.list with the
deb http://lancelot.netknights.it/community/xenial/stable xenial main
deb http://lancelot.netknights.it/community/bionic/stable bionic main
deb http://lancelot.netknights.it/community/focal/stable focal main
While the link http://lancelot.netknights.it/community/ and its subdirectories are browsable, it is only available via http! Most browsers will automatically redirect you to https, which will result in a 404 error, since the link http**s**://lancelot.netknights.it/community/ does not exist. So if you want to browse the repository, take care to do this via http. This is OK. The apt program fetches all packages via http. If you still fail to fetch packages, you might most probably need to check your firewall and proxy settings.
privacyIDEA has a perl module to “translate” RADIUS requests to the API of the privacyIDEA server. This module plugs into FreeRADIUS. The FreeRADIUS does not have to run on the same machine as privacyIDEA. To install this module run:
apt-get install privacyidea-radius
For further details see RADIUS plugin.
Starting with privacyIDEA 2.15 Ubuntu 16.04 packages are provided. Starting with privacyIDEA 3.0 Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 packages are provided, Ubuntu 14.04 packages are dropped. Starting with privacyIDEA 3.5 Ubuntu 20.04 packages are available.
