The current version of LUCI is 0.2.2.

You can download LUCI here:

A debian package is also available for woody (current testing Debian version). Warning: this package should not be up to date.


You must have the following programs and libraries installed on your system to install and use LUCI (Debian package names are provided in parenthesis): LUCI is written in Python, a language written by Guido van Rossum. PyGTK is the the GTK+ module for Python, written by James Henstridge.

Install procedure:

To install LUCI from the tarball, untar the archive in the directory of your choice:
gzip -cd luci-0.2.2.tar.gz | tar xvf -
Eventually, become root if you want to install it outside of you home directory.
Then go to directory created by the tar:
cd luci-0.2.2
and type:
This install program will ask you where you want to install LUCI and finish the job.

NOTE: The installation script will always try to install the description files in /etc/luci. However, this will fail unless you are logged in as root while doing the installation. In this case, you will need to start LUCI using the "-d" option to specify where the configuration files are (which will be the "examples" directory within the directory you are installing LUCI from, but it can be moved anywhere you desire). For example, if the tarball has been opened in your login directory, then you would start LUCI as follows:

luci -d ~/luci-0.2.2/examples
See the LUCI documentation for more about how to use options of the program.
