Linux / RaspberryPI

Installation of HubKit 4.3 and Coordinator 2.6

We have created a .deb package for the installation. This makes the installation of HubKit 4.3 very easy on Linux.

Please note that if you use a Raspberry Pi, you must have a 64bit Raspberry Pi. This means it has to be a Raspberry Pi 4. We suggest 4 GB RAM or more. The Raspberry Pi 4 uses the ARM64 processor version. We currently do not support 32bit OSes such as Raspbian. To install on a Raspberry Pi, we recommend the Raspberry Pi Imager and install the Ubuntu Server 20.04.2 LTS on your SD Card.

Once you have Ubuntu installed and connected, download the Gravio HubKit server for the appropriate platform from the download site.

  • Use SSH to connect to Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04 LTS. (Gravio requires Ubuntu LTS only)
  • Transfer the downloaded deb package (setup_-XXXX_amd64.deb for AMD64, setup_-XXXX_arm64.deb for ARM64) to Ubuntu.
  • Execute the following commands in your console:

Ensure your apt package manager is up to date:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Install Update Manager, Coordinator, and HubKit. Very important: After the installation do not reboot. Do the next step first. Why not reboot? After the installation, Gravio might be downloading some updates from the internet. If you reboot during that process, the installation may break. Install by entering:

sudo apt install -y ./setup_-XXXX_XXX64.deb

If you happened to reboot after the installation, and or your installation is corrupted in any way, please use this command to re-install: sudo apt --reinstall install -y ./setup_-XXXX_XXX64.deb

Login to Update Manager

Open a browser and access port 8080 of the IP address of your Ubuntu 18.04/20.04 LTS machine.

http://(ip address):8080/
You will see a holding screen while the Update Manager processes the Coordinator and HubKit.

Once the Coordinator and HubKit are set up, you will see a login screen where you can log in. Please refer to “ to learn how to use the Update Manager.
