<pre> First Install OpenERP:

apt-get install postgresql git

echo "deb http://nightly.openerp.com/7.0/nightly/deb/ ./" >>


apt-get update

apt-get install openerp

Just install dependencies and configure some stuff related to db for us.

apt-get remove openerp

apt-get install python-dateutil python-feedparser python-gdata

python-ldap python-libxslt1 python-lxml python-mako python-openid python-psycopg2 python-pybabel python-pychart python-pydot python-pyparsing python-reportlab python-simplejson python-tz python-vatnumber python-vobject python-webdav python-werkzeug python-xlwt python-yaml python-zsi python-docutils python-psutil wget python-unittest2 python-mock python-jinja2

apt-get install python-dev libpq-dev

apt-get install poppler-utils

apt-get install python-pdftools

apt-get install python-pip

pip install pyPdf decorator requests gdata

pip install decorator

pip install requests gdata

adduser odoo

passwd odoo

su postgres

$ createuser -s odoo

$ createdb test --owner odoo

$ exit

su odoo

$ cd ~/

$ git clone https://github.com/odoo/odoo.git

$ cd odoo

$ python odoo.py& (Run in background)



That is a very quick install guide.  If you want a service script and to be able to specify your own config file then have a look at the links posted on this page: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-install-odoo-from-github-on-ubuntu-14-04-for-testing-purposes-only-ie-not-for-production-52627

You haven't install the service. To run the server without service, execute this command in your Odoo directory

python openerp-server

If I was you, I'd follow the guide at


Please remember, just downloading it isn't enough, you have to install it, and make sure you have all the other packages required to install it that include your http server and database such as postgresql
