I am following the instructions in the ubuntu server guide to install ebox but having no luck. If anyone out there can help a newbie, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I used the command:

apt-cache rdepends ebox | uniq

and recieved this response:

w: unable to locate package ebox

I also tried:

sudo apt-get install ebox

and it said:

reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
reading state information... done
E: Couldn't find package ebox

Thanks again for any help,

Curt

This may not be THE way to do it, but I found A way to do it. I got an iso from the ebox website and re-installed ubuntu from the iso that included ebox

So can anyone explain how exactly you go about instaling ebox, I'm getting the same error that curtriley is getting. The webpage that kerrt_s gives is great but it tells me to do what I am already doing ( what curtriley stated at the top of the thread) and its not working.

Its worth noteing that I am behind a proxy. I know if that may have something to do with this. Is there some one that can point me in the right dirrection of how I would properly setup ubuntu server for an HTTP proxy?

Have you tried adding the launchpad repository as described in the given link?

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox/ubuntu hardy main

And what version of Ubuntu are you using? Hardy or another one? Ebox is available for hardy but I'm not sure about other ubuntu versions.

I personally used this page instead and took the more ebox 1.2 repository.
http://trac.ebox-platform.com/wiki/Document/Documentation/InstallationGuide

Only one thing to note on that page:

The command

sudo apt-key add ....

should be

sudo-apt-key adv ...

Ebox is in the Universe-repository, you'll have to enable that first and then your command should work.

If you have Gnome installed, go to System/Administration/Software Sources and enable Universe on the Ubuntu Software-tab. If you are running the server version without a GUI this page should help: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/CommandLine#Adding%20the%20Universe%20and%20Multiv erse%20Repositories

Addition: After install I couldn't find Ebox through FF. And uninstalling gives mayor headache and will probably result in a reinstall. Not very important as I was just testing, but still...

It is very incovenient that when you use Ebox you can't do any manual edits to configurations anymore. (As in using ssh and a text-editor.)
