To use our repositories, follow the instructions below: Set up the APT configuration and import our signing key.
This is our main repository which contains our core packages.
Set up a file at
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen.list with the following contents:
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian bunsen-hydrogen main
This is an auxiliary repository containing packages backported from Debian testing and imported from Ubuntu.
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen-jessie-backports.list with the following contents:
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian jessie-backports main
The backports repo’s packages will have a pin priority of 100, so regular jessie packages will continue to take precedence until you explicitly install a backported package.
To upgrade a package to its backports version, target the backports distribution as follows:
Subsequent package upgrades will be installed from the backports repo or the regular repository, whichever package version is higher.
This is an auxiliary repository containing packages backported from Debian Testing and Unstable. It should be used only with BL Helium or Debian Stretch.
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen-stretch-backports.list with the following contents:
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian stretch-backports main
We currently operate two repository mirrors. If you specify the host
pkg.bunsenlabs.org in your APT configuration, you will be redirected automatically to the preferred server based on your IP addresses geolocation:
- Users residing in Australia, Oceania and Asia get redirected to
asia.pkg.bunsenlabs.org; the server is located in Singapore.
- Other users stay on
pkg.bunsenlabs.orgwhich is identical with
eu.pkg.bunsenlabs.org; the server is located in Germany.
If you get redirected to
asia.pkg.bunsenlabs.org but notice that your ISP has a faster route to the EU server than the Singapore one, put
eu.pkg.bunsenlabs.org into your APT configuration in order to opt out from the redirect. Similarly, users in Europe, the Americas or Africa for whom
asia.pkg.bunsenlabs.org is faster should switch to that mirror.
Access via HTTPS
You may change the
http:// prefix in your BL repository URLs to
https:// in order to access the repositories using an encrypted connection. Before setting this up, ensure that the package
apt-transport-https is installed on your system. The package is part of the BL standard installation.
You might see
apt-get update complaining sporadically with the error:
W: Size of file [...] is not what the server reported. apt has some strange issues in conjunction with apt-transport-https which are hard to debug despite having been declared fixed before (e.g. Debian bug #802617). As a workaround, either ignore the messages or do not use apt-transport-https.
The preferred method for installing our archive key on your system is using the provided keyring package.
Download the latest .deb keyring package and install it:
Fetch and verify the repository’s signing key:
The key’s fingerprint as displayed by gpg should be identical with the following hexstring:
3172 4784 0522 7490 BBB7 43E6 A067 3F72 FE62 D9C5
If that is not the case, you have got the wrong key. Use a safe, non-intercepted internet connection in order to retrieve the correct key file.
Finally, add the key to APT and update the package index:
You may now install
