I’ve created an installer that will install RACHEL locally on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS desktop. The image I used to test was ubuntu-18.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso downloaded from https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop. I hope it works! if you have any questions or problems please let me know.
Preparing the system
- open a terminal
sudo apt-get install python
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot now
Running the Installer
- Download ubuntu_local.zip
- Unzip it and place the “installer” folder in the /var/tmp directory
- Open a terminal
sudo python /var/tmp/installer/installer.py
- When it’s complete type
sudo reboot now to reboot the system
RACHEL is now available at “localhost”, “127.0.0.1”, “http://rachel”, or “www.rachel.com”. You just have to type one of those into the browser and it should load.
This installation will have RACHEL and Kolibri so this readme file has instructions on what modules are supported and how to install modules.
The script will also copy any modules in the “installer/modules” directory to /var/www/modules during installation so you can put modules you want installed there and it should copy them.
If all of the laptops are the same I would suggest making one laptop installation with all of the modules and then use a program like Clonezilla to make an image of that system and install it to the others to save time.
