Installing on Ubuntu

Since Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal)

Package auto-multiple-choice is available on the official Ubuntu repository. Use your favorite tool (Software Center, Synaptic, etc.) to install it.

All Ubuntu versions, testing a recent version of AMC

Prefer AMC testing repository for more recent versions, with additional features but perhaps a little less stable:

ppa:alexis.bienvenue/amc

This repository name can be added with the graphical interface (see for example this documentation).

Then select package auto-multiple-choice for installation, and validate.

Development version

You want to install the development version, with most recent features (and perhaps bugs)? Use the testing PPA, updated on a regular basis from the development version of AMC:

ppa:alexis.bienvenue/test

Old Ubuntu versions, AMC stable version

Last stable version is 1.3.0, released on 2016-03-16.

To install it, you can use the project's repository:

ppa:alexis.bienvenue/amc-stable

Besides auto-multiple-choice, this repository contains several other packages with newer versions than in the official Ubuntu repository, in order to fix bugs affecting AMC:

  • Package libnet-cups-perl with version 0.60-1 to fix a bug in version 0.59-1 (9.10 Karmic Koala version) make AMC crash when asking to print sheets.
  • ImageMagick packages at version 6.5.5 to fix a bug (present in 9.10 Karmic Koala packaging) preventing PDF corrected answer sheets generation with multi pages sheets.

Using Ubuntu AMC repository, you will allow these packages to be updated automatically.
