How to install OpenERPv7.0 on Ubuntu 10.04

I am trying to install OpenERP 7.0 on Ubuntu 10.04. All notes I have found on the Internet Apply to Ubuntu 12.04. I've followed those notes and each time it fails to find the web client, all my paths etc are correct. The issue seems to be that a required package python-unittest2 is no available on Ubuntu 10.04.

Has anyone managed to install it on this version of Ubuntu?

I've solved adding this PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/python-unittest2

and it worked.... :-)

Keep in mind that you will need to add the addons option to your openerp command, it will look like this:


Or if you use a config file add the following lines : addons_path= <sources>/addons,<sources>/openerp-web/addons with <source> the folder where you have install openerp. About the config file for starting openerp, you can get information on the tutorial of http://theopensourcerer.com on the install article

Hello For install OpenERP-7.0 in Ubuntu-12 is very similar to OpenERP-6.1: doc.openerp.com/v6.1/install/linux/server/index.html#installing-the-required-packages

Add this new depends apt-get install python-docutils apt-get install python-mock apt-get install python-unittest2 apt-get install python-jinja2-doc

Moise, question was about ubuntu 10.04 not 12.04.

Thanks for the response but I asked about Ubuntu 10.04 and not Ubuntu 12. Ubuntu 10.04 using Python2.6 and it appears that 2.7 of higher is required to install the Unittest2 package which will not install on Ubuntu 10.04.
