  2. Create the following file:

    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/logtrust.list file

    deb http://repository.logtrust.net/ precise main
  3. Update the APT local database and install the logtrust-system and logtrust-monitor Devo packages:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install logtrust-system logtrust-monitor

Update via Devo repository

To upgrade to the latest version of any Devo packages, follow the same procedure as for a standard distribution package. The following is an example for DEB-based distributions:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install logtrust-system
$ sudo logtrust-system-configure (If not running automatically)

Installation via .deb packages

Download the logtrust-system and logtrust-monitor packages found here: 

Install the packages using the following commands:

  • logtrust-system

    sudo dpkg -i logtrust-system_0.1-1_all.deb
  • logtrust-monitor

    sudo dpkg -i logtrust-monitor_0.1-1_all.deb

Modifying the configuration of a Devo package

After the packages have been installed, you can access the configuration options by running one of the following commands:

  • logtrust-system

    sudo logtrust-system-configure


    sudo dpkg-reconfigure logtrust-system
  • logtrust-monitor

    sudo logtrust-monitor-configure


    sudo dpkg-reconfigure logtrust-monitor

    apt-get purge logtrust-system


    dpkg --purge logtrust-system
  • logtrust-monitor

Tested versions

  • Ubuntu 13.x
  • Ubuntu 12.x
  • Ubuntu 11.x
  • Ubuntu 10.x

Common errors in Ubuntu 12.x

Due to a bug in this version of GNuTLS (libgnutls26 package, version 2.12.14), secure connections using TLS/SSL do not work. To fix this problem, take the following steps:

  1. Install a later version of the library:

    apt-get install libgnutls28
  2. Force rsyslog to load the new version by adding the following line to the /etc/default/rsyslog configuration file:

    # For a x64 system
    # For a x86 system
    export LD_PRELOAD 
  3. Restart rsyslog:

    /etc/init.d/rsyslog restart
