Nuxeo DAM 1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04, in 60 seconds.

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

So ... you have a Ubuntu 10.04 system, and you want to install the brand new, open source Nuxeo DAM 1.1 Digital Asset Management software in 60 seconds. No problem.

Install Sun's Java (if you haven't already), and verify that it installed properly. First, install the new (as of this latest release of Ubuntu) repository for the Sun Java JVM, update the apt cache and make sure you can see the Sun Java6 packages:

$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
$ sudo apt-get update
$ apt-cache search sun-java6
sun-java6-source - Sun Java(TM) Development Kit (JDK) 6 source files
sun-java6-jre - Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 6
sun-java6-javadb - Java(TM) DB, Sun Microsystems' distribution of Apache Derby
sun-java6-fonts - Lucida TrueType fonts (from the Sun JRE)
sun-java6-plugin - The Java(TM) Plug-in, Java SE 6
sun-java6-jdk - Sun Java(TM) Development Kit (JDK) 6
sun-java6-demo - Sun Java(TM) Development Kit (JDK) 6 demos and examples
sun-java6-bin - Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 6
ia32-sun-java6-bin - Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 (32-bit)
$

That looks good so keep going.

Install the Sun JDK, then check the version to make sure it was installed properly:

$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_20"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 16.3-b01, mixed mode)
$

Seems good so far, movin' on ...

Add the Nuxeo apt repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file, update the apt cache and search for all Nuxeo-related packages:

$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://apt.nuxeo.org/ lucid releases"
$ sudo apt-get update
$ apt-cache search nuxeo
nuxeo-dam-jboss - Nuxeo Digital Asset Management
nuxeo-dam-tomcat - Nuxeo Digital Asset Management
nuxeo-dm-jboss - Nuxeo Document Management
nuxeo-dm-tomcat - Nuxeo Document Management
$

Install, say, the Tomcat-based version (well, OK, this might take a while):

$ sudo apt-get install nuxeo-dam-tomcat

at which point, once the installation completes, the software should actually be running, which you can verify with:

$ sudo service nuxeo-dam status
Nuxeo DAM is running (pid 15694).
$

So ... point your browser at http://localhost:8080/nuxeo and get to work.

That is all. Any questions? At this point, you should probably head over to the Nuxeo announcement page and keep reading.

OpenJDK? While Nuxeo currently supports only Sun's Java 6 JVM, if you're feeling bold and daring, you're welcome to run their software under the standard OpenJDK JVM. I explain how to do that here.

And, again, while Nuxeo doesn't officially support anything but Sun's JVM, I've never run into a problem using OpenJDK, so give it a shot.

If I am not mistaken, I think you'd say it's how you, your Ubuntu 10.04 system, install VirtualBox, then download and run the spanking new dam Nuxeo 1.1 digital asset management software in VirtualBox session.

You raise a lot of questions in my mind; you wrote a good post, but this post is also thought provoking, and I will have to think about it some more; I will return soon. GPS Vehicle Tracking

Login

So I've run through the setup procedure which took me about 2 minutes to complete (because of Sun Java).

Now I have a login page, so what's the admin login and password??

How to login

Ah, I should probably finally point readers at the official Nuxeo DAM user's page to take over where this install guide leaves off.

In any event, it's "Administrator" for both fields.
