Binary Installation on Ubuntu#

Citadel binaries are provided for Ubuntu Bionic and Focal. All of the Citadel binaries are hosted in the osrfoundation repository. To install all of them, the metapackage ignition-citadel can be installed.

First install some necessary tools:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lsb-release gnupg

Then install Ignition Citadel:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb `lsb_release -cs` main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gazebo-stable.list'
curl | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ignition-citadel

All libraries should be ready to use and the ign gazebo app ready to be executed.

Head back to the Getting started page to start using Ignition!

Uninstalling binary install#

If you need to uninstall Ignition or switch to a source-based install once you have already installed the library from binaries, run the following command:

sudo apt remove ignition-citadel && sudo apt autoremove
