    Hi everyone,

    I am a total Linux newb but I need to install this piece of software on a Ubuntu server install.

    I would normally just install Windows and install the Windows client but it crashes regularly which is no good for a CCTV NVR and I want to avoid using a full Ubuntu install.

    I'm sure for someone who knows Linux this is comically easy but any work I have done on Linux in the past has been copy and paste from Google.

    I have installed Ubuntu Server 14.04 and the LAMP web server components but I am stuck from here please help with some copy and paste commands.

    Thanks for the help.

    run

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i  unifi-video_3.5.1~Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb; sudo apt-get install -f
    

    should install it.

    you might need to download it.

    something like:

    Code:
    wget http://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/3.5.1/unifi-video_3.5.1~Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb
    followed by Buzzons' advice
