Ubuntu Installation

These instructions are for installing Lasso Server on 32-bit/64-bit Ubuntu 12.


For Ubuntu 14, you’ll first need to manually download and install libicu48 for i386 or libicu48 for amd64, and after installing Lasso, download and install a newer module compiled for Apache 2.4 to the original’s location at /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_lasso9.so.

Installation with apt

To install Lasso Server via apt, the LassoSoft repository must be configured on the server. Add the repository by appending this to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://debianrepo.lassosoft.com/ legacy main

Import the LassoSoft public key:

$> curl http://debianrepo.lassosoft.com/lassosoft-public.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

Then run the following to install Lasso Server:

$> sudo apt-get update
$> sudo apt-get install lasso-instance-manager

Lasso’s Java support (which includes methods for PDF manipulation) and ImageMagick support are provided as separate packages. If you need the functionality these packages provide, they can be installed with the following commands:

$> sudo apt-get install lasso-java-api
$> sudo apt-get install lasso-imagemagick

When done, open http://your-server-domain.name/lasso9/instancemanager to load the initialization form and complete your Lasso installation. From here on, you can read up on using the Lasso Instance Manager and Instance Administration and Configuration interfaces.

Package Installation

To install Lasso directly from the Debian packages, download the latest releases from the repository archive, then run these commands (ignore errors when running dpkg):

$> sudo apt-get update
$> sudo apt-get install apache2
$> sudo dpkg -i lasso-instance-manager_9.2*.deb lasso-imagemagick_9.2*.deb lasso-java-api_9.2*.deb
$> sudo apt-get install -f
