    Default Girder 6 on Linux

    Girder 6 for Linux 64 bit Intel


    1. Install Debian Jessie AMD64.

    2. Add the Promixis Debian Jessie repo to your sources.list. You can do this by saving the attached file (promixis.list) to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory. Or by saving the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/promixis.list

    deb jessie main
    3. Import the Promixis signing key

    wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    3. As root type apt-get update

    4. As root type apt-get install girder


    Girder can be run as a service or with the full front-end. Typically you'll want to run only the back-end on the R-Pi and use a different computer to run the front-end. To start the back-end only run ./Girder6Service in the /opt/girder directory. Note that you'll need to run front-end once as root to install the license code.

    Alternatively you can use the /etc/init.d/girder script to start and stop Girder.

    To run the front-end start x, open a xterm, go to /opt/girder and type ./Girder6.

    Staying up to date

    To update to the latest version of Girder simply type

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
