Quantum GIS install on intrepid ibex

Asked by ilvar89 on 2008-11-10

I would like to install Qgis on Ubuntu 8.10, however two of the dependencies are currently uninstallable (libgdal1-1.4.0 and libgeos2c2a (>=2.2.3)) . Identify whether these two dependencies could be installed.

On Ubuntu 8.10 to run qgis i added a ppa (Persona Packages Archive ) repository

Open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

add this row at the end of file

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/qgis/ubuntu intrepid main

save and exit

then still using terminal

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install qgis grass libgdal1-1.5.0 libgeos-3.0.0 libgeos-c1 libgeos-dev
sudo apt-get clean

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Then type:

qgis

Then you may need to add a launcher (a desktop icon) to run qgis
right click with mouse on the desktop and choose add a launcher...

( name qgis )
( program /usr/bin/qgis )
( icon /usr/share/qgis/images/icons/qgis-icon.png )

hope this helps

I had the same problem and the only package which was missing was libgdal1-1.5.0. After installed it worked fine. I think this package should be a dependency of qgis.
Thank you for this information.
Best regards,

Felipe

Due the latest update to ppa we need to add this PPA gpg key then install qgis so we must do:
