Hi Andreas -
  the OSGeo-Live [1] project has a complete set of tested packages for 
Ubuntu 14.04 [0]
When the next release of OSGeo-Live ships, the entire collection will 
likely be renamed 
to "Ubuntu-GIS" and publicized widely. 
  You are welcome to add the OSGeo-Live nightly PPA to your apt 
sources,and install. 
Please report back on your results.  
  best regards from Berkeley, California

Hello list,

installing this package on ubuntu 14.04 from repo "deb
http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt trusty-pgdg main" leads to errors. 

First strange thing is, that choosing postgresql-9.4-postgis-2.1 ends up
in installing postgresql-9.4-postgis-2.1 AND postgresql-9.4-postgis-2.2,
ubuntu needs postgresql-9.4-postgis-2.2 as dependency for

After install everythings seems to be ok. But it is not: shp2pgsql is
missing! If i try to install postgis 2.2 or 2.1.8 neither from repo or
from source i get the message "Postgresql 9.5 must be installed first". 

So - right now it's not possible to install postgres 9.4 with postgis on
ubuntu 14.04

Could you please help me?

Thanks Andreas
