Openbravo ERP 2.50 installation steps in ubuntu (default installation)

Hi all, there are n number of ways presented in openbravo community to try or work with Openbravo ERP. but i felt any of them were too big for novices. So i ve presented my small complition (CCP:Cut,Copy,Paste) version of installing Openbravo in Ubuntu. There is a virtual box appliance that is far more easier to install than this. but lemme get to its disadvantages in a later post.

1. Adding canonical partner repositories. (this is not present by default)
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

2. In the file that opens up add the following lines,
deb karmic partner
deb-src karmic partner

3. Installing the application
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install openbravo-erp

4. This will install openbravo cluster,apache tomcat,postgres. Openbravo uses its own properties so the post numbers are not the default ones.

5. To run the application, type the follwing in the browser menu.
