Using Ureka

Each time you wish to use Ureka (in a new terminal session), you must setup your environment by calling ur_setup. This setup script, described below in more detail, sets various environment variables that Ureka depends on. ur_forget provides a way to purge your environment of Ureka variables.

ur_setup

Basic usage - If you only have one Ureka installation and are using the common variant, then you can call ur_setup without any arguments:

ur_setup

To load the “spam” variant of the default installation:

ur_setup spam

To load the “spam” variant of the “foo” installation:

ur_setup spam foo

ur_forget

This script removes all Ureka variables from your environment:

ur_forget

ur_build_date

This command displays the date that the selected environment was built on (in the form of YYYY-MM-DD):

ur_build_date

ur_docs

This is a shortcut for viewing the Ureka documentation in your web browser:

ur_docs

ur_install

ur_install allows you to view available addons and install them. See the Addons section for more information.

ur_version

Shows the version of Ureka that’s currently selected.

Shortcuts

On most systems, the installation process will create a Desktop or menu shortcut that can be clicked on to launch a terminal session with the Ureka environment already selected. If you click on a Ureka shortcut, then there is no need to call ur_setup.
