Install PrivacyIdea on Ubuntu 18.04


#1

Hi,
im have trouble to install privacyidea on a Ubuntu 18.04.
I tried all the Installation Guides. With the PrivacyIdea Bionic Repo there is no way to install the package, because its not found. If i change the Repo to Xenial i could install PrivacyIdea. But the problem is here that Ubuntu tells me the RNG-Tools Package is not a viable Installmedium.

I thought a install should be quick and easy. What im doing wrong?

Also the Windows 2 Factor is only possible with credential provider or? Do we need to contact the company ? We want to roll out privacyidea to our customers if its fit our conditions.

You are not following the guides!
The guides do not tell, that there are packages for 18.04 - only 16.04 and 14.04:
https://privacyidea.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation/ubuntu.html
So if you want to run on 18.04, you still need to use the pip installation.

Also the Windows 2 Factor is only possible with credential provider or?

Yes. Microsoft does not allow to do otherwise!

Do we need to contact the company ?

Yes

We want to roll out privacyidea to our customers if its fit our conditions.

Then you should check and decide to either use it or drop it.

Kind regards
Cornelius
