Hello there,

I'm trying to run Odoo 10 on Ubuntu 14.04 from nightly source.

Everywhere on the web, it is written to run Odoo 10 with ./odoo-bin

But I don't see this file in the downloaded files.

Where is it???

Should I inevitably run an installation script? (I prefer not)

I don't want to run odoo10 like a service. Not now.


Usually, with Odoo8, I use this command to run a server :

/home/odoo-iv/odoo-8.0-20161109/openerp-server -c /etc/odoo/openerp-server-iv.conf -db_user=odoo-iv --db_password=xxx --log-level=info --db-filter='odoo-iv' --database=odoo-iv

And the file openerp-server is well located in this directory.

But no trace of odoo-bin in the directory of odoo10...


I have found the setup.py python file in the source directory. Should I execute this setup.py file to build or install the source code? I didn't have to do that with Odoo 8...

When I download Odoo 10 community source from :




the file odoo-bin is NOT in the directory.

But when I download Odoo 10 community source from Github on https://github.com/odoo/odoo, the file odoo-bin is in the directory.

I have published this issue :

from https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/14441

Okay, I didnt know how you have downloaded. You should use GIT for source.

Odoo-bin is only on 10.0 branch and serves only to play /odoo/cli/ scripts.

You can search your file by entering command 'locate' + file_name in terminal.


$ locate odoo-bin

It is nowhere. thanks

I download the source nightly archive. I decompress archive. No trace of odoo-bin file in this directory.
