Ubuntu Linux Install Problem...

Post by paulsr » Wed Dec 07, 2016 4:06 am

Environment: Ubuntu 16.04 Livecode Indy 8.1.1.

Greetings: I'm having problems installing LC on Linux.

First when I clicked on the downloaded file LiveCodeIndyInstaller-8_1_1-Linux.x64 nothing happened. I had to make it executable.

Then, I saw a message saying it couldn't write into /opt, so I had to do a chmod 777 /opt

Now I have a message that says "Internal error (couldn't extract payload item to file)." And I have no idea what that means, nor what to do to fix it.

Can someone help please.

rather than installing it for "all users" try installing it for just your one user and see if that works.

alternatively, run the installer with sudo, like:

sudo /path/to/the/file/livecodeCommunity-Linux.x64



...you probably do not want your /opt folder to be 777

Many thanks. Installing for one user worked fine.

And yes, I've change /opt back to original perms.

Thanks again..
