No pb.

hmm, like postgresql being already installed ?

Note that most of
http://docs.cubicweb.org/admin/setup.html#postgresql-configuration looks
accurate to me, even if ubuntu already pre-installed a lot of things.

>From this, the following steps are relevant in your case (guessing a bit

su postgres
createuser -s -P username

note that under ubuntu you might need to do:

sudo su

in the first step

We'll happily accept any enhancement to the doc wrt ubuntu setup. (any
patch, actually)

Imo the generic instructions are "sufficient" course but they maybe are a
bit too dry and too generic (you have to understand your own situation quite
a bit, system-wise, to make sense of it).
