Instructions for installation, assuming that you're installing the packages to generate TEI from subversion

  • Have a modern running Ubuntu / Debian system. I used Ubuntu 15.4
  • Do the following to add the GPG key to your system:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver wwwkeys.uk.pgp.net --recv-keys FEA4973F86A9A497
  • Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://tei.oucs.ox.ac.uk/teideb/binary ./
  • Refresh the package lists
apt-get update
  • Install the packages (it's possible that not quite all of these packages are strictly needed). If the system suggests you install any package with suffix -doc, it's usually a good idea to install it, since these are the documentation package matching the packages you're installing. The install is broken up into packages from the general ubuntu repository and packages from the TEI repository.
apt-get install psgml xmlstarlet debiandoc-sgml linuxdoc-sgml jing jing-trang-doc libjing-java rnv texlive-xetex
apt-get install trang-java tei-p5-doc tei-emacs saxon nxml-mode-tei tei-p5-xsl  tei-p5-xsl2 tei-roma onvdl
  • Purge the gcj java components from your system to prevent obscure bugs and incompatabilities:
apt-get remove `apt-cache search gcj | grep gcj | awk '{print $1}'`

How to download or buy


Additional notes

  • At http://tei.oucs.ox.ac.uk/teideb/ you can also download a customized Ubuntu Live CD with these packages.
  • Setting up a Jenkins server explains how you can set up a continuous integration server using Ubuntu. A Jenkins server watches the TEI source code and compiles new versions of all the TEI products, including the TEI Debian packages, whenever a change is made to the source.
