Add this apt repository to /etc/apt/sources.list file

deb http://nightly.openerp.com/8.0/deb/ ./

Then type:

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install odoo

 

 

it reported

 

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package odoo

 

then I changed to follow the instruction at

http://pulse7.net/openerp/install-odoo-ubuntu-14-04-github/

it worked and lokked like installation is well

but if I executed

./openerp-server

 

it reported error

 

Running as user 'root' is a security risk, aborting.

I believe the deb package (which at this time is out of date and not working well) and the provided github script both install odoo to run as an "odoo" user.  I too have struggled with the install script because I don't personally like where it puts the files.  But as it says, you don't want to run as root for security.  I recommend that you try the installation script from Andre Schenkels, which you can find at: 

http://www.schenkels.nl/2014/07/install-odoo-v8-0-from-github-ubuntu-14-04-lts-formerly-openerp/

You'll notice that about half way down the article, he says to "sudo su odoo" before checking if the server works.  This allows you to run as the odoo user, which should avoid that security error. 

He also has an excellent automated script that works very well for installation of v8, if that's what you're looking for.

Hope that helps,

Nick
