Quick Install

Paparazzi runs best on Ubuntu 16.04 or higher, so this quick installation guide is for Ubuntu users. I you have an other OS or if you want more detailled installation, see the Installation page.

Open a terminal and execute each lines below. If one fails, ask for help on gitter.

Version specific prerequisites

If you have Ubuntu 20.04:

sudo apt-get install python-is-python3 gcc-arm-none-eabi gdb-multiarch

If you have Ubuntu 18.04 or lower:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:team-gcc-arm-embedded/ppa
sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-embedded
sudo apt-get update

Install Paparazzi

Add paparazzi apt-repository and install dependencies:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:paparazzi-uav/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f -y install paparazzi-dev paparazzi-jsbsim dfu-util pprzgcs

Note

If you are on Ubuntu 18.04, pprzgcs is not available, just remove it from the last line.

Clone the repository:

cd ~
git clone --origin upstream https://github.com/paparazzi/paparazzi.git
cd ~/paparazzi
git remote update -p
sudo cp conf/system/udev/rules/*.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules

Optionnal: checkout on a stable version:

git checkout -b v6.1 upstream/v6.1

Get the submodules and build Paparazzi. This step might take a long time the first time you launch it:

make -j1

Note

The -j1 argument may not be necessary, but if you are not familiar with paparazzi, its safer to use it. However, it will make paparazzi build much slower.

Finally, launch Paparazzi with

./paparazzi

If all went well the Paparazzi Center should now be running. Please continue to the next page for a guided tour.
