I want to use postgresql9.3-postgis2.1 and gdal-bin parallel .

I have refer instruction here for installing postgresql-9.3 on ubuntu 12.04. I have install qgis from here

While installing gdal-bin it will remove postgis. As I explore I found similar question which says ubuntugis-unstable repository and postgresql repository will not work together.

enter image description here

Then how can install postgresql9.3-postgis2.1 and gdal-bin parallel. Can someone help to solve the problem , Any suggestion will be great help for me.


  • ubuntugis-unstable has packages for postgresql 9.1, gdal 1.10 and qgis 2.4. Is there any reason you need postgresql 9.3?

  • PostgreSQL 9.3 is available via ubuntugis for Ubuntu 14.04, but the geos package is still missing for that platform. So self-compiling seems to be the only option.

I have installed postgis by configure using source.

Download the latest PostGIS source and compile it

wget http://download.osgeo.org/postgis/source/postgis-2.1.0.tar.gz
tar xzvf postgis-2.1.0.tar.gz 
cd postgis-2.1.0

  • That's not the latest. The latest is postgis-2.1.3. Latest stables are listed here: postgis.net/source
