otb on Mint 14

OK – I had otb set up to run through the SEXTANTE plugin in qgis usingthe standard repository as mentioned in the online help:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable

Then there was an upgrade of the otb libraries and everything stopped working – not good. I don’t know if what I have done as a work around is a sensible thing to do but it seems to have gotten my installation up and running again:

  • Uninstall the SEXTANTE plugin
  • Uninstall qgis and anything else installed using the ubuntugis-unstable repository
  • Install the stable repository – sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis
  • Run sudo apt-get update
  • Then use sudo apt-get install libotb otb-bin otb-bin-qt python-otb to install the libraries and applications
  • Reinstall the SEXTANTE plugin and hopefully it will all work

That worked for me but I don’t know what will happen when qgis 2.x is released.
