Just attempted installing Grafana on a new install of Ubuntu 18.04 with the followign commands:
sudo apt-get install -y adduser libfontconfig
sudo dpkg -i grafana_5.1.0_amd64.deb
I cannot start the service. I get the following error:
me@nuc03:~$ sudo service grafana-server start
Failed to start grafana-server.service: Unit grafana-server.service not found.
I assume something changed in Ubuntu 18.04 and Grafana is unable to put its init.d files in the right locations?? Any ideas on how to fix? I’d love to get this working on the latest UBuntu, but I will downgrade to 16.04 if I have to.
