How to install Openerp Apps from Launchpad

on 2/26/13, 2:25 PM 9,972 views

I want to install 3rd party modules from launchpad. (like lp:openerp-mgmtsystem, lp:openerp-asterisk-connector, etc...)

What is the best procedure to install addons by using bzr?

Openerp is installed as: /opt/openerp/server



Ubuntu 12.10 x64

  • You should create a branch for your module installation with bzr command,
  • Add that module folder to the openerp module search path.
  • Restart the openerp server.
  • Make installation from web interface.

With this method you can update modules and openerp addons separately without any problem.

Here is an example module installation for you below.

Create a new folder and download aeroo modules from launchpad to this folder with bzr.

sudo su openerp
cd /opt/openerp/
bzr branch lp:aeroo

Add aeroo directory to the module search path of openerp by editing the config file

sudo nano /etc/openerp-server.conf

change the addons_path as

addons_path = /opt/openerp/addons,/opt/openerp/web/addons,/opt/openerp/aeroo

I also recorded installation from openerp interface you can watch it in Youtube. (since interface is different than 6.1 you may not find where to install at first sight) http://youtu.be/S1bKPUL6nUU

PS: I used a previous answer of mine for this post: https://accounts.openerp.com/forum/Help-1/question/2780/

Thank you. I also installed Aeroo Reports without any problems.
