Debian/Ubuntu packages

Installation using APT

The recommended way to install YajHFC on Debian/Ubuntu is to use the YajHFC apt repository.

To use it, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run apt-get update :

deb stable/

The packages found there should work for both Debian and Ubuntu, so you can use the same apt line for both distributuions.

Usually you will receive a warning that my packages are not authenticated when you try to add my packages for the first time (since I am not a Debian or Ubuntu maintainer).
You can either ignore this warning or import my public key, so that apt considers my packages "trustworthy".

To import the public key, execute the following command in a terminal (and re-run "apt-get update" afterwards):

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

After successfully adding the repository, you will have the following additional packages available:

Installs the main jar file, a launcher and adds a menu shortcut.
Installs a command line only version of YajHFC (cyajhfc).
Installs a fax printer in CUPS.
Installs the YajHFC FOPPlugin.
Installs the YajHFC PDF plugin.

You can now install YajHFC just like any other software packaged for your distribution.

For example, to install a fax printer and all dependencies, run the following command:

sudo apt-get install yajhfc-faxprinter
