IDM installation

Note: this post will show you how to install IDM on a Debian based machine (like Ubuntu). The following instructions were tested on Debian 9.0 (stretch) y Ubuntu 17.04 (zesty). If you use Vagrant, you can download our VagrantFile for both setups.

Setting up Debian repositories

IDM is located on ARCO’s pike repository. To install it, run the following command:

$ wget -qO- 'http://pike.esi.uclm.es/add-pike-repo.sh' | sudo sh

Installing ZeroC Ice for Python3

With a fresh installation of Debian 9.0 or Ubuntu 17.04, you can install ZeroC Ice for Python 3 directly:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-zeroc-ice

For older versions or another systems, you can follow the official installation instructions: Ice Distributions.

Installing IDM

Also, very straightforward:

$ sudo apt-get install idm

Check that it works

To check if your setup is working, download the following configuration file:

Router.Table.Path = router.table
Router.Adapter.Endpoints = tcp -h -p 6140
Router.Ids = 10AA01

And launch the IDM router using:

$ idm-router --Ice.Config=router.config
WARNING:root: router controller not defined
WARNING:root: DUO advertisements disabled
INFO:root: queue Size: 10
INFO:root: router at '10AA01 -t -e 1.1:tcp -h -p 6140 -t 60000'
INFO:root: waiting events...

If you see the same (or similar) result, then it works!

Using Vagrant

The provided VagrantFile has two configured boxes, and comes bundled with a bootstrap script to install the required packages. Download it, and launch one of the included configurations (debian or ubuntu):

$ vagrant up debian

When finished, you can enter the box and check if IDM is correctly installed (using the above instructions):

$ vagrant ssh debian
