Installing on Ubuntu

Obtaining signing key

First, we need to obtain the Unita signing key from the ubuntu keyserver, here's how:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys BF5B197D

This will download and add the Unita signing key to your Linux install.

Adding repository to your APT sources.

sudo su - Sudo to root first

echo "deb https://repo.unita.network/apt/ubuntu/ bionic main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unita.list

This will add the repository to your APT sources file. NOTE: Please remember to change "xenial" for your Ubuntu version codename

Refreshing APT sources and installing Unita

sudo apt update && sudo apt install unita

By doing this, we'll update our sources and install Unita on our Ubuntu Box

Installing on Debian

Obtaining the public key in Debian is a bit different, but not complicated

First, we need to make sure sudo is installed:

Type sudo su and press enter, if you get a password prompt, then you can move on to obtaining the public key

Installing sudo

Obtain admin privileges (su to root) and then type your admin user (root) password

Once you're logged in as "root" please type the following: apt-get install sudo

When sudo finishes installing, add your user to the sudo group: gpasswd -a youruser sudo Logout and then log in again.

Obtaining Public key

Install dirmngr first

sudo apt install dirmngr

`sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys BF5B197D`

This downloads and installs the Unita public key

Adding repository to your APT sources.

sudo su - Sudo to root first

echo "deb https://repo.unita.network/apt/debian/ stretch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
