Re: [ferret_users] Ferret and debian/ubuntu packages

Hi Karen,

We hadn't heard about this. Apparently somebody has also made it available as a Debian package. I would not have any reservations about trying this, except that it shows the version as v6.92, which is almost 2 years old. If anybody wants to try it, we'd be interested to hear of your experience in using it.

The best recommendation is to install PyFerret, https://github.com/NOAA-PMEL/PyFerret. On that page, note that there is an Anaconda Installation for Linux, OS X, and Windows 10/bash, or via the more traditional tar files and shell-based install script.

Classic Ferret is available via tar files. Both Ferret and PyFerret contain the same updates and capabilities from the Ferret command line.

Hi all

I have seen that ferret and pyferret are available in the official debian/ubuntu packages.

However, the official Ferret website provides instructions for downloading and installing Ferret manually and does not mention that at all.

Have some of you installed Ferret/PyFerret with these packages? What are the "official" recommendations?
