Re: [kura-dev] Running Kura on Ubuntu

Hi John,

Yes, it will work, but there may be a couple of issues to address.

1. Which Debian installer are you trying to use? If you donât need to configure network settings through Kura, I would recommend using the âNo Networkingâ installer [1]. This is likely where you are seeing a lot of issues. Ubuntu handles networking quite differently than Raspbian, so networking support in Kura would likely require source code changes. Let me know if you need more explanation or support here.

2. The core of Eclipse Kura is nearly all pure Java. The exception is one native library that needs to be compatible with your system for Kura to start. The source for this native library can be found here [2]. This may need to be compiled for your architecture and replaced in the org.eclipse.kura.linux.usb bundle. Again, I can provide more information on how to do this if you need.

If possible, I would start with the âNo Networkingâ installer and check the status of the components and services. If you see an issue with a native library in org.eclipse.kura.linux.usb, you know you need to move to step 2. If you are seeing other errors, let me know.

I have previously been using Kura 1.4.0 on a Raspberry Pi 2.

But we now wish to deploy Kura and our App on a different hardware platform (an industrial PC) which is running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. 
We ONLY make use of the Ethernet ports and not USB, Bluetooth, Wifi or Serial Ports.

Is Ubuntu a supported runtime platform and if so, how can I deploy Kura to it?
I have tried simply deploying the Pi2 .deb file, but that doesn't seem to work right. 

Any help greatly appreciated.
