I was just going through a tutorial online HERE. If you see the last command in the section:

# For workshops at conferences and events:
# Download and install from http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/wiki/Live_GIS_Workshop_Install
wget --no-check-certificate https://launchpad.net/~georepublic/+archive/pgrouting/+files/pgrouting-workshop_[version]_all.deb

There is the following in the above command:


So is that exactly how i have to execute the command or am i expected to pass a certain value or replace [version] during execution time ?

If i execute the command as it is, i get the following message:

Reusing existing connection to launchpad.net:443. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found 2015-09-01 17:26:30 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Thank you.


Yes, you'll need to supply [version] with an actual version number, which it looks like you can obtain from here. So for example:

    wget --no-check-certificate https://launchpad.net/~georepublic/+archive/ubuntu/pgrouting/+files/pgrouting-workshop_2.0.6-ppa1_all.deb

Yes you have to replace [version] by the version. This is like /path/to/your/home/directory/, it's a kind of variable which is different depending on the user.
