Installing OpenSceneGraph on Ubuntu

If you use the Synaptic Package Manager in Ubuntu 9.04 to install OpenSceneGraph, by default it will install version 2.4.x. However if you want to install OpenSceneGraph 2.8.1 then you need to do the following in a terminal:

  1. Modify the file /etc/apt/sources.list (make sure you run it via sudo something like: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list)
  2. Add the following two lines in the end and save the file:
    1. deb http://openscenegraph.dachary.org/packaging-farm/openscenegraph/gnulinux/debian/unstable/src ./
    2. deb-src http://openscenegraph.dachary.org/packaging-farm/openscenegraph/gnulinux/debian/unstable/src ./ 
  3. Run in the terminal: sudo apt-get update
  4. And finally run: sudo apt-get install openscenegraph

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
