Debian packages for netatalk 3

netatalk hasn't been packaged with Debian for a few years now. If you don't want to get your hands dirty with compiling the package you can download compiled (binary) deb packages of netatalk version 3 from my GitHub releases. Right now I have packages for netatalk version 3.1.12 and 3.1.11 for for Debian buster, stretch and jessie.

To install the packages:

  1. Find out the release of Debian you have installed with source /etc/os-release; echo $PRETTY_NAME
    This will output a line of text like Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch). In this example stretch is the name of the Debian release. Write that down somewhere.
  2. Find the appropriate packages for your Debian release on the releases page. Out of the several packages for your release you'll need to download the libatalk18 and netatalk packages. So for my example, I would download the files stretch_libatalk18_3.1.12-1_amd64.deb and stretch_netatalk_3.1.12-1_amd64.deb.
  3. Download both .deb packages to your local machine through the browser or with wget.
  4. Install both packages at the same time with dpkg -i. In my example, I would do sudo dpkg -i ./stretch_libatalk18_3.1.12-1_amd64.deb ./stretch_netatalk_3.1.12-1_amd64.deb
