Install Omada software controller on Debian 11 (easy, no Docker needed)
Here is my method for installing Omada on Debian 11. It adds debian repositories for the older packages that are needed. This assumes you don't have any software on the machine that needs Java newer than version 8.
First, create a new file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ call it "omada.list" and the contents are:
Sorry I had to paste an image, instead of text that you could copy/paste. The forum software won't let me post links. Maybe a moderator can help.
Then do an apt update, then install the needed prerequisite packages:
root@debian:~# apt update root@debian:~# apt install openjdk-8-jre-headless mongodb-server curl jsvc libcommons-daemon-java
Download the Omada Debian package from the tp-link website, and install it
Then follow the instructions. That's it, you should have the Omada software controller installed on your Debian 11 machine now. This should also work for Debian 10. No idea if it will work when Debian 12 becomes stable.
Hope this helps!
