ZeroC provides their own (non-official) Ubuntu packages for the version 3.6. This recipe includes all steps for a successful installation on Debian jessie.

Some new features (like the icegrid-gui metric graphics) requires JavaFX, that is only available in the Oracle Java SDK.

To install packages you must setup some additional repositories. Execute the following commands:

$ sudo su
# wget -qO- | apt-key add -
# echo "deb sid main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pike.list
# wget -qO- | apt-key add -
# echo "deb stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zeroc.list

To install Ice packages, execute:

# apt-get update
# apt-get -y install zeroc-ice36

All this may be done just running this script

A simple way to make the same is:

$ sudo su
# wget -qO- | sh
