Assumptions & Prerequisites
This guide assumes you have root access to the Linux device. This is required as new software needs to be installed system-wide.
1. System Preparation
First, there are a few Ubuntu configuration options that need to be set in advance.
1.1. Add the Moonshot Repository
Add the Moonshot Debian Wheezy repository to your system. To do this, run the following command (as root, or using sudo):
Install the Moonshot GPG key:
Update the apt cache with the new repository information:
1.2. Install updated font-config packages
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ships with versions of fontconfig-config and libfontconfig that are a little too old for Moonshot. We need to update these packages with newer versions.
- Download the following two packages:
1.3. Moonshot GSS Mechanisms
Create a new file at
/usr/etc/gss/mech (you will likely need to create the
/usr/etc/gss directory) with the following content:
2. Install the Moonshot Client libraries
We’re now ready to install the Moonshot software and its required dependencies. Install the software by running the following command:
3. Next steps
At this point, you now have all of the required Moonshot software on your device, including the Moonshot Identity Selector. Depending on what client application you are using and wish to enable Moonshot authentication for, you job may now be done, or you may need to go and install a Moonshot compatible version of the client software or configure your existing client. Check the section on client compatibility if you are unsure.
