egroupware doesn't install corrrectly

egroupware (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After apt-get install egroupware, it is possible to access the webadmin at localhost/egroupware/setup.

But, mysql is not enabled, and it seems to default to postgresql.

Then, after initial setup, follows a configuration step. This immediately notices that no pgresql database is created. It gives instructions how to do that, using the command createuser which is not installed. After installing postgresql-client-common which is needed for createuser,
another program needs to be installed: postgresql-client-<version>
There is a choice between 8.1 and 8.2 I choose 8.2

then the createuser works, it asks for new password, and then it can not connect to pgresql.

I (lead developer of EGroupware) would recommend to use MySQL as a default for EGroupware. It's much better supported and tested compared to PostgreSQL. It would give Ubuntu users a much better out-of-the-box experience.
