I would like to install the last version of GDAL on my user space of a sever (ubuntu framework). I do not have permissions to use 'sudo' command because I have not 'root' permissions.

What do you suggest to do?

  • Are all tools present to build it from source? – Kersten Oct 17 '16 at 11:54
  • I'm not sure. You should install also osgeo, I guess.. – CafféSospeso Oct 18 '16 at 9:58

since i still can not create comment, i'll write this in answer section.

Refer to the following link for installation instructions: http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/BuildingOnUnix

  • Yes, I did it. But then if i try to check if it is installed, I have this message: – CafféSospeso Oct 16 '16 at 11:16
  • The program 'gdalinfo' is currently not installed. To run 'gdalinfo' please ask your administrator to install the package 'gdal-bin'. And I tried to install 'gdal-bin' by using: 'apt-get install gdal-bin'...but I don't have permissions – CafféSospeso Oct 16 '16 at 11:17
  • don't forget to add path to the gdal binaries. – Bambang Oct 16 '16 at 11:19
  • refer to this post on how to set your shell's PATH environment variable unix.stackexchange.com/questions/3809/… – Bambang Oct 16 '16 at 11:22
  • Changing the environmental variable should be enough? I unzipped gdal-2.1.0.tar.gz in my user folder in the server. How do I find the gdal-binaries – CafféSospeso Oct 16 '16 at 11:31
