Installing the Ogre SDK         The necessary steps you need to take to install the precompiled OGRE SDK
This details the necessary steps you need to take to install the precompiled OGRE SDK.
If you want to build Ogre from source instead, visit the Building Ogre page.


This section is for developers willing to install a precompiled Software Development Kit (SDK) under Linux platform.

Unix users typically compile their own sources for almost all software, including Ogre.

However pre-built binaries are available for a handful of distributions. See below for yours.




Ubuntu 11.10 (Quantal) and Newer

The Ogre3D libraries are part of the Universe repository, so to download simply install the libogre-dev package via your favorite package manager. For Ubuntu 14.4 there is no libogre-dev, so to install Ogre 1.9 you need to install libogre-1.9-dev.

For example, to install via the terminal enter:

  • sudo apt-get install libogre-1.9-dev


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 10.10 and 11.04:


  • add this PPA: ppa:ogre-team/ogre
  • update your packages list
  • install libogre-dev package

See this link(external link) if you don't know how use a PPA (Personal Package Archive).

If you want use commands:

  • add OGRE PPA with: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ogre-team/ogre
  • update your package list with: sudo apt-get update
  • install libogre-dev package with: sudo apt-get install libogre-dev



Next Step:

Now you are ready to go to Setting Up an Application, and/or visit the Tutorials.
