Binary packages for Ubuntu and Debian are available on the OpenICE Launchpad PPA. Copies of the (rather large) Qemu-KVM Ubuntu-11.10 virtual machine used to build the images is available upon request, as are the (much smaller) debian/* build files. The total installed size of the binary packages as of 1/3/2012 is 2.6 MB. The packages have been tested on Ubuntu 11.10 on an i386 machine and on Debian Wheezy on an amd64 machine. Coming soon: RPMs for Fedora.

How to install the binary packages on Ubuntu:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:openice/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libobd nobdy qjson

How to install the binary packages on Debian:

Add these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list using a text editor:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openice/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openice/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main


In a terminal window, type

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 6D71C8BE
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libobd nobdy genericobd2

and (optionally)

sudo apt-get install libobd-dev nobdy-dev


These commands create an executable file /usr/bin/nobdy. They have been tested on a fresh Ubuntu 11.10 Qemu-KVM. Proceed with the "Running Nobdy" instructions. In order to use all of nobdy's features, similary install gpsd and obdgpslogger from the main Ubuntu repositories.

The result of the installations above will generally place the files in the following locations:

  • obdsim application: /usr/local/bin (or /usr/bin, depending on system configuration)
  • nobdy application: /usr/bin
  • configuration files: /etc/nobdy
  • shared libraries: /usr/lib
  • plugins: /usr/lib/nobdy
