Debian/Ubuntu: Install from apt.mopidy.com¶
If you run a Debian based Linux distribution, like Ubuntu, the easiest way to install Mopidy is from the Mopidy APT archive. When installing from the APT archive, you will automatically get updates to Mopidy in the same way as you get updates to the rest of your system.
If you’re on a Raspberry Pi running Debian or Raspbian, the following instructions should work for you as well. If you’re setting up a Raspberry Pi from scratch, we have a guide for installing Debian/Raspbian and Mopidy. See Raspberry Pi: Mopidy on a credit card.
The packages should work with:
- Debian stable and testing,
- Raspbian stable and testing,
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and later.
Some of the packages, including the core “mopidy” packages, does not work on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
This is just what we currently support, not a promise to continue to support the same in the future. We will drop support for older distributions when supporting those stops us from moving forward with the project.
Add the archive’s GPG key:
wget -q -O - https://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
Add the following to
/etc/apt/sources.list, or if you have the directory
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/, add it to a file called
mopidy.listin that directory:
# Mopidy APT archive deb http://apt.mopidy.com/ stable main contrib non-free deb-src http://apt.mopidy.com/ stable main contrib non-free
For the lazy, you can simply run the following command to create
sudo wget -q -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mopidy.list https://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.list
Install Mopidy and all dependencies:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mopidy
Optional: If you want to use any Mopidy extensions, like Spotify support or Last.fm scrobbling, you need to install additional packages.
To list all the extensions available from apt.mopidy.com, you can run:
apt-cache search mopidy
To install one of the listed packages, e.g.
mopidy-spotify, simply run:
sudo apt-get install mopidy-spotify
For a full list of available Mopidy extensions, including those not installable from apt.mopidy.com, see Extensions.
Before continuing, make sure you’ve read the Debian package section to learn about the differences between running Mopidy as a system service and manually as your own system user.
When a new release of Mopidy is out, and you can’t wait for you system to figure it out for itself, run the following to upgrade right away:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
