Getting and Installing ILK/CLiPS Software Packages

The following ILK/CLiPS software has been packaged for Debian, Ubuntu, and Fedora by Joost van Baal (ad 1810):

Follow the instructions on this page to for your package manager of choice.

 

Debian

Getting and installing ILK/CLiPS software can be done using either the command line from the console, or using a GUI. Using the console, operate this way:

First enable the TiCC Debian packages repository ("TiCC" is the Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication, the research center of which the ILK research group is a part).

As root, run:
 echo deb http://apt.ticc.uvt.nl squeeze main contrib non-free >\
 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ticc.list

(This adds the TiCC repository to your configuration. Alternatively, use wheezy when appropriate.)
You can also manually edit
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ticc.list or /etc/apt/sources.list
to contain the line:

deb http://apt.ticc.uvt.nl squeeze main contrib non-free

Then, again as root, run:
 apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys B15CD6AC

(This enabling needs to be done only once.) Once this is setup, you can install a TiCC package by running e.g. (as root):

 apt-get update && apt-get install timbl

Choose "mbt", "timblserver", ... instead of "timbl" if appropriate, of course.

Using the GNOME GUI, one does:

  • go to System->Administration->Software Sources
  • go to tab 'Third-party-Software'
  • click 'Add'
  • enter 'deb http://apt.ticc.uvt.nl squeeze main contrib non-free'
  • optionally, enter 'deb-src http://apt.ticc.uvt.nl squeeze main contrib non-free'
  • In order to obtain the key that is used to sign the TiCC apt repository, you can use:
    $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys B15CD6AC

Ubuntu

As of may 2012 packages for Ubuntu are available for oneiric ,precise and quantal.

On Oneiric: using the Unity GUI, one does:

  • go to System Settings (found under the 'gearwheel' logo of your GUI in the right top location)
  • go to System ->Software Sources

Or, On Precise and Quantal: using the Unity GUI, one does:

  • Open the Ubuntu Software Centre
  • select edit -> Software Sources...
Then:
  • select the tab 'Other-Software'
  • click 'Add'
  • enter 'deb http://apt.ticc.uvt.nl precise main contrib non-free' (or quantal or oneiric when applicable to you)
  • optionally, enter 'deb-src http://apt.ticc.uvt.nl precise main contrib non-free'
  • In order to obtain the key that is used to sign the TiCC apt repository, you can use:
    $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys B15CD6AC
After these steps, you should be able to install our software packages just like any other package:
  • Using the Ubuntu Software Centre. Search for the desired package: e.g. 'timbl' or 'ucto'
  • Using another package manager like Synaptic. Search for the desired package: e.g. 'timbl' or 'ucto'
  • Or on the commandline using 'apt':
    $ sudo apt-get install timbl

 

Fedora

To get and install TiCC software on your Fedora Core 16 system, you can use yum.

First enable the TiCC RPM packages repository. As root, run:

 cat <<EOT >/etc/yum.repos.d/ticc.repo
 [ticc]
 name = TiCC Software
 baseurl = http://rpm.ticc.uvt.nl/fedora-core-16-yum-rpm
 EOT

(This enabling needs to be done only once.) Once this is setup, you can install a TiCC package by running e.g. (as root):

 yum --nogpgcheck install timbl

Choose "mbt", "timblserver", ... instead of "timbl" if appropriate, of course.

 

For Mac users: Homebrew

We are now in the process of setting up procedures to install all our software via Homebrew. Check this page later for more details. For now, Mac users are encouraged to download the tarballs from this site and compile from source.
