VTS OSS Public package repository

Available debian package repositories

We provide our OSS software for the following popular debian-based linux distributions:


GIS libraries availability

Our software depends on recent version of various geograhic libraries (e.g. Proj, GDAL).

If you happen to be running Ununtu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) you have to use new libraries from Ubuntu GIS PPA. Please, follow the instructions on the Ubuntu GIS PPA page how to add their repository to your APT configuration.

HTTPS transport

Our package repository is accessible both by HTTP and HTTPS protocols. We recommend using HTTPS and the APT configuration snippets we provide use HTTPS URLs as well. To enable HTTPS you have to install the apt-transport-https package first.

    $ apt install apt-transport-https

Setting up APT

Repository key import

First, we have to import OSS Packages public GPG key in the APT’s trusted keys

    $ wget -O - https://cdn.melown.com/packages/keys/oss.packages%40melown.com.key.gpg | sudo tee >/dev/null /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/oss.packages@melown.com.key.gpg

APT sources list snippet

Then we have to add configuration for particular repository to apt-sources.

NB: These configuration snippets use HTTPS URLs which require the atp-transport-https package installed. If you do not want to use HTTPS for whatever reason you have to change all occurences of https with http in downloaded files.

Configuration snippets are available at https://cdn.melown.com/packages/conf/REPO.list where REPO is a name of particular repository.
