This section shows the process of installing the corresponding dependencies to configure the GMA software on a personal computer to generate personal networks or to create individual projects.
You have the scenarios where the following operating systems are:
- GNU/Linux (Ubuntu based)
- GNU/Linux (Arch linux based)
2.1. GNU/Linux (All distibutions) initial proccess¶
The first step is to install the LAMPP software, which allows us to install the mysql database manager in a very simple way, to do so, download the following package https://www.apachefriends.org/xampp-files/7.3.4/xampp-linux-x64-7.3.4-0-installer.run that is easily installed in GNU/Linux operating systems. If you want to know more about this project, visit the following link https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html
When this software is downloaded, we execute the following commands in the folder where the file is located:
sudo chmod +x xampp-linux-x64-7.1.28-0-installer.run sudo ./xampp-linux-x64-7.1.28-0-installer.run
The program installation process is executed. To install, follow the instructions provided by the same.
Every time you start your computer and you want to run the apache server, you must run:
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
The software is created with the framework called django, which has python as the programming language, we proceed to install it.
In Ubuntu based:
sudo apt install python3 sudo apt install python3-pip sudo apt install python3-mysqlclient
In Arch linux based:
sudo pacman -S python sudo pacman -S python-pip sudo pacman -S python-mysqlclient
Many times, Linux distributions have installed the default dependencies, in this case, the system will inform you that the packages are already installed.
Now, we proceed to install django and its dependencies.
In all GNU/Linux distibutions:
sudo pip3 install django django-cleanup django_select2 django-bootstrap-datepicker-plus django-ckeditor django-bootstrap4 mysqlclient openpyxl

python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
And finally we execute:
pip install django django-cleanup django_select2 django-bootstrap-datepicker-plus django-ckeditor django-bootstrap4 mysqlclient openpyxl
