Install Ubuntu

Please refer to

Install PostgreSQL 9.4.1

iDempiere can also run with Oracle 10G or 11G, and also with PostgreSQL 8.4 to 9.3, but for this tutorial we use postgresql 9.4.1 - see for details

echo "deb trusty-pgdg main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list
wget --quiet -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.4
sudo apt-get install postgresql-contrib

Install Mercurial Client 2.8.2

sudo apt-get install mercurial

Install OpenJDK 1.7.0_75

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
# Note - to work with iDempiere version 2.1 please install openjdk-6-jdk

Install Eclipse Indigo 4.4.1

Download the corresponding version for your operating system from "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers"

For Ubuntu 14.04.2 64 bits I downloaded Luna here

NOTE: To work with iDempiere version 2.1 you must instead download Indigo here

On ubuntu the installation of eclipse is just uncompress it and is ready for usage, for the rest of the session let's suppose we uncompressed eclipse on a folder called $ECLIPSE_HOME

The first time you run Eclipse it asks for the workspace folder, at this stage you can use the default workspace - it will be changed later.

  • Complete the installation pushing Next .... accepting the license and then Finish
