    Installing Ubiquiti UniFi Controller 5 on Raspberry Pi

    Discussion and comments for the post Installing Ubiquiti UniFi Controller 5 on Raspberry Pi



    I have followed the guide on Jessie before with no issues.  Purchased a Pi3B and with the plan to move over to a newer Pi and use a USB drive vs a SD card.

    Ran into an issue where it was not installing at all following the guide.  Found a post by user samhinsley here:


    “Just finished my install on a Raspberry Pi 3 B. The guide worked perfectly! The only change I had to make was because I used Stretch not Jessie. Before you do Step 1 of the guide run “sudo apt-get install dirmngr” as this is not included in this release by default? I would also highly recommend using Java 8 as per the guide”

    This extra step did the trick and the install when fine after that.

    One thing I noticed is that Raspian the “2017-11-29-raspbian-stretch-lite” I installed “snappy-java-”, not the “snappy-java-1.0.5.jar “version referenced in the guide.  I left the default version in and skipped the whole Step 4” Update to the Snappy Java Library, using the following commands:” section out.  Everything seems to be working ok.  If I see any issues, I’ll go back and perform this step, substituting the latest version of Snappy-java.

    Just wanted to post this additional information.
