Ubuntu 18.04 Installation

See original GitHub issue


I´m trying to install in 18.04. Is this possible?

Here are the errors I am getting, when following your installation instructions:

  1. (short way) the base requirements can not be met:
xxxxx@xxxxx:/xxxxxx/papermergedms# python3 -m venv .venv --system-site-packages
xxxxx@xxxxx:/xxxxxx/papermergedms# source .venv/bin/activate
(.venv) xxxxx@xxxxx:/xxxxxx/papermergedms# pip3 install -r requirements/base.txt
Collecting mglib==1.2.7 (from -r requirements/base.txt (line 1))
  Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement mglib==1.2.7 (from -r requirements/base.txt (line 1)) (from versions: 1.0.0, 1.0.1)
No matching distribution found for mglib==1.2.7 (from -r requirements/base.txt (line 1))
(.venv) xxxxx@xxxxx:/xxxxxx/papermergedms#

  1. (Detailed Version) Version not matching:
# python3 --version
Python 3.6.9
# pip3 --version
pip 9.0.1 from /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages (python 3.6)
  1. Small issue: On 18.04 there is no pdftk. Any ideas?
xxxxx@xxxxx:/home/xxxxx# sudo apt install build-essential \
>     python3-pip \
>     python3-venv \
>     git \

Package pdftk is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'pdftk' has no installation candidate

I am sure that your DMS is exactly what I am looking for my home. I´d love to get it up and running!

Kindest regards and thank you in advance,

@mtonnie which stapler application you exactly mean? This one?

Yes, exactly this one. I’m using this wrapper to convert the arguments from pdftk to stapler. I have decided to use this solution, because of the following two topics:

  • (cross) compiling pdftk is a nightmare
  • License might be difficult in case of redistribution

@mtonnie, hm, license is a very good argument 😃. I was concerned about pdftk license as well 😃 I opened this ticket to keep a reminder for me to replace pdftk with staple (because of license).
