Download Software with install.sh


Have downloaded a tsg file for linux Mint 32 bit from this site.


https://processing.org/download/

Have extracted and located a install.sh file.

Nothing happens when I right click and select run.

What other way including terminal can I get this software to run ?

Thankyou

Charles Harris

I guess you mean processing-3.3.5-linux64.tgz ?

tar xvf processing-3.3.5-linux64.tgz
cd processing-3.3.5/
./install

just to remind you that you need to have appropriate permissions to execute install.sh

Re #3.

The application "installs" to /home/<user name>/.

Download Software with install.sh

Hi Everyone

Thanks for your replies.

Have shifted the: processing-3.3.5-linux32.tgz file to /home/charles7/

In terminal I post and get:

charles7@charles7-Satellite-Pro-L500 ~ $ /home/charles7/tar xvf processing-3.3.5-linux32.tgz
bash: /home/charles7/tar: No such file or directory
charles7@charles7-Satellite-Pro-L500 ~ $ cd processing-3.3.5/
bash: cd: processing-3.3.5/: No such file or directory
charles7@charles7-Satellite-Pro-L500 ~ $ ./install



Not sure about permissions. How do I check that.

Note that it is 32 version I need.

Can you check and see if I have the terminal coding correct.

Thankyou
Charles Harris

yes, there is error.
in first command:
remove /home/charles7/
Also you need to point to tar file either adding /home/charles7/ before tar filename or cd /home/charles7 before first command.
and you will be able to proceed to next command only after first one is successful.
hope this helps.

Hi Everyone

Success!!

Had to make some changes as suggested by cse_200509. Below is my successful code for someone else in same position. I had forgot the .sh on the final command! Now all installed and I have learnt heaps, for future reference.
*************
cd /home/charles7

tar xvf processing-3.3.5-linux32.tgz

cd processing-3.3.5/

./install.sh
************

Thanks to the group and yourselves

Charles Harris
