Installing The Unifi Controller On Debian Buster

IHere’s what you need to do to run the Unifi Controller on Debian Buster:

Add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb jessie/mongodb-org/3.4 main


wget -qO - | apt-key add -

(thx u/theinvisibleman_ for the key update info on his post here)



 dpkg -i <package deb file>

To install both of those packages. Then:

 apt-get update

And install the mongodb packages:

 apt-get install mongodb-org-server mongodb-org-tools mongodb-org-shell

This should give you all you need to install the controller deb.

If I missed any depends, let me know as I threw this together after the fact and may have forgotten something.

BitWarden (Open Source Rust Implementation) Debian Builds

You might have heard of BitWarden – a free/open source password management service that is a lot like LastPass.  I use it pretty heavily here thanks to the integration with various web browsers and iOS.

The original BitWarden server is kinda large and clunky.  A third party has re-implemented it in Rust with a much smaller footprint is API compatible with the official server.

As I’m not a fan of Docker, Bitwarden_rs was initially going to be a no-go for me due to it being distributed as a container by default.  However, another individual as nice enough to provide a build script and premade .deb files of it that doesn’t require docker to be installed.

The original build script author has been quiet since October, and there has been a few upgrades to Bitwarden_rs in the meantime leading to an outdated repo.  I’ve forked the repo on Github, updated the build script, and released updated .deb files for the latest upstream release.
