Install Pelican on Debian or Ubuntu

This document explains how to install Pelican on a Debian or Ubuntu Linux operating system.

Install Pelican DEB

You can install Pelican by downloading a .deb package or by downloading a binary .tar.gz file. You only need to follow one section below to install.

Note: Pelican Debian package does not contain dependencies such as XRootD for Pelican servers. Use Pelican Docker image instead if you want to serve a Pelican server.

Install the Pelican using a DEB package

  1. Navigate to Pelican download page and select the Pelican DEB you want to install.

  2. In the Operating System section, select Linux. In Architectures section, select X86_64 or ARM64 depending on the architecture of your machine.

  3. In the list of download candidates, copy the link to pelican-x.x.x-1.amd64.deb if you select X86_64, or pelican-x.x.x-1_arm64.deb if you select ARM64, where x.x.x is the version number.

  4. Change the following command with the link to the binary you copied in the previous step and run the command

    wget <replace-with-the-link-you-copied>
    sudo dpkg -i pelican_7.5.8-1_amd64.deb

    Note: You need to replace pelican_7.5.8-1_amd64.deb with pelican_7.5.8-1_arm64.deb if you are running an ARM64 machine.

    Example to install Pelican v7.5.8 DEB package on an X86_64 machine:

    sudo dpkg -i pelican_7.5.8-1_amd64.deb
