$ sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:groonga/ppa
$ sudo apt update
Ubuntu 18.04:
$ sudo apt install -y -V postgresql-10-pgroonga
Others:
$ sudo apt install -y -V postgresql-12-pgroonga

If you want to use MeCab based tokenizer, you also need to install groonga-tokenizer-mecab package:

$ sudo apt install -y -V groonga-tokenizer-mecab

Create a database:

$ sudo -u postgres -H psql --command 'CREATE DATABASE pgroonga_test'

(Normally, you should create a user for pgroonga_test database and use the user. See GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA pgroonga for details.)

Connect to the created database and execute CREATE EXTENSION pgroonga:

$ sudo -u postgres -H psql -d pgroonga_test --command 'CREATE EXTENSION pgroonga'

That's all!
