I used exclusively Debian Jessie packages. This should probably be off  
list shouldn't it? I'll wait for some other opinions before I take it  

Basically I used this, but instead of using pip for the software  
installs, I used the debian packages for the relevant software - it  
was all there and a current enough version.


I added the CPU only switch in the Makefile (I don't have an NVidia  
GPU). Here's all the packages I ended up installing in my quest:

protobuf-compiler python-pil python-ipython ipython-qtconsole  
python-protobuf libhdf5-dev python-skimage libatlas-dev libatlas-dev  
libatlas-base-dev libatlas3-base libprotobuf-dev libleveldb-dev  
libsnappy-dev libopencv-dev libhdf5-serial-dev libprotobuf-dev  
libleveldb-dev libsnappy-dev libopencv-dev libhdf5-serial-dev  
python-pip libprotobuf-dev libleveldb-dev libsnappy-dev libopencv-dev  
libboost-all-dev libhdf5-serial-dev libgflags-dev libgoogle-glog-dev  
liblmdb-dev protobuf-compiler

So a quick run down:

1/ install all those package
2/ manually install caffe as per sohliloquies post
2b/ put the path to the caffe library in PYTHONPATH system var  
(getting this right was the hardest bit of the entire process)
3/ follow the rest of sohliloquies post
4/ use 'ipython qtconsole' to follow the deepdream notebook at  

NB: I did use pip at some point, but gave up when not of it would  
easily install. There might be something pippy that made this work  
though, I can't be sure. I'd love to know if I did this piplessly.
