Comment (by Bas Couwenberg):

 Not building libgdal-java from the gdal source package will make it go out
 of sync quickly.

 If you don't want to hassle to maintain the gdal packaging changes for
 OSGeoLive, you could download the JAR from Maven Central in


 For example:
 cd /usr/share/java
 GDAL_VERSION=$(apt-cache show libgdal-dev | grep Version | awk -F': '
 '{print $2}' | sort | tail -1 | awk -F'.' '{print $1"."$2".0"}')
 -O gdal-${GDAL_VERSION}.jar
 ln -s gdal-${GDAL_VERSION}.jar gdal.jar
