Install Instructions

Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)

  1. Setup the repository
    1. Install the HTCondor repository key
      $ wget -qO - https://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/ubuntu/HTCondor-Release.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
    2. Add the HTCondor repository (running as the root user)
      # echo "deb http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/ubuntu/8.8/focal focal contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
      # echo "deb-src http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/ubuntu/8.8/focal focal contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. Install HTCondor
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install htcondor # or minihtcondor
  3. Start it running
    # systemctl start condor
    # systemctl enable condor
  4. Check that it is running
    $ ps ax | grep condor
    Note that if condor is NOT running, the only output of this ps command will look like this:
    $ ps auxww | grep condor
    user    1466  0.0  0.0  14736  1048 pts/1    S+   13:05   0:00 grep condor
    If condor is running, you will see several lines of output, something like this:
    user    1433  0.0  0.0  14736  1092 pts/1    S+   13:05   0:00 grep condor
