Ubuntu packages (<= 14.04)

If you are using Ubuntu, you have the possibility to install OpenAlea using your package manager.

We have set up a ppa to distribute deb files for ubuntu. Add the ppa to your system in a terminal by enter:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:christophe-pradal/openalea
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:christophe-pradal/vplants
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:christophe-pradal/alinea
sudo apt-get update

Then install all openalea and vplants components and their dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python-openalea python-vplants python-alinea

Finally, type a command to update your environment variables( do not execute this command as root):


That's it. You can run visualea or lpy as well as aml.

Egg online installation (Other Linuxes)

This method will install dependecies built and packaged by the OpenAlea team. They may overwrite packages provided by your distribution. If your distribution isn't mentioned in previous sections, you'll most likely prefer to follow the building from sources instructions. Do not try to use both methods at the same time.

We still release OpenAlea and co. with Python eggs. If you prefer this installation method :

  1. Make sure you have Python (2.6 or 2.7 but not 3.0) installed.
  2. Make sure you have setuptools installed.
  3. If point 1) and 2) are satisfied, you can now run the ez_alea_setup.py script.
