Installing the Software Client for Linux on Ubuntu

In this section, you will learn how to install and uninstall the Software Client for Linux on Ubuntu. There are a few prerequisites to complete before a Anyware Software Client for Linux installation will work.


  • These instructions assume you have already built the desktop machine, and that the machine meets the client's requirements.

  • You must have super user (root) privileges and be able to issue sudo commands.

  • Ensure a graphical environment has been installed/configured on the Software Client system by running the following command:

    sudo systemctl get-default

A desktop environment is required

Before proceeding, install a desktop environment of your choice. Kubuntu distributions are bundled with KDE; you can install KDE from other distributions by using this command:

sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop

To install Mate Desktop, use this command:

sudo apt install ubuntu-mate-desktop

These commands are provided as a convenience; there is no requirement for KDE or Mate Desktop. Any desktop environment will work.
