Installing with apt

Ubuntu

Start a Terminal (Gnome Menu: Applications / Accessories / Terminal). Paste these commands into a terminal in one go; they will add the utopia apt repository, install its public key and then install utopia-documents:

echo "deb http://utopiadocs.com/apt $(lsb_release -cs) main" | \
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/utopia.list && \
sudo apt-get --quiet update && \
sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install utopia-keyring && \
sudo apt-get --quiet update && \
sudo apt-get install utopia-documents

Following this, updates will appear in your package manager automatically.

su root

(enter root password)

Then copy and paste these commands in one go:

echo > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/utopia.list \
"deb http://utopiadocs.com/apt $(lsb_release -cs) main" && \
apt-get --quiet update && \
apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install utopia-keyring && \
apt-get --quiet update && \
apt-get install utopia-documents

Following this, updates will appear in your package manager automatically.

Manual Install

Known Issues

  • Trying to view a molecule on a machine without OpenGL available exits the application with the message "Error: Missing GL version" displayed in the terminal; if you do not have OpenGL available, do not click the "play" button at this time.
  • With some themes, ticks in the login dialog tickboxes appear as a white cross on white background; hovering the mouse over the box indicates the current state.
  • There are some minor theming glitches which do not affect usability.
