Ubuntu and Virtualbox

There is a 30 day trial version of qbee available here. It runs both on embedded Linux and on regular Linux servers. Therefore it is very easy to test and evaluate qbee by using Virtualbox and a Linux distribution if no RPI is at hand. Please register your account and then just start like this:

  1. Download Virtualbox and install it.

  2. Get a suitable Linux image (we currently recommend Debian based systems)

  3. Download the appropriate agent package from the "qbee packages" tab or use wget to get it directly.

    quick package download with wget

    Use wget to directly download and install the suitable agent package. Please check for current version.

    wget https://cdn.qbee.io/software/qbee-agent/qbee-agent_1.2.1_amd64.deb && sudo dpkg -i qbee-agent_1.2.1_amd64.deb
  4. Bootstrap your device. Here is a tutorial how to do this.

  5. Now you are all done.
