Prerequisites for Installing the Software Client for Linux

There are a few prerequisites to complete before Anyware Software Client for Linux installation will work. The prerequisites are listed as follows:

  • A desktop environment of your choice is required. 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.

  • The desktop machine meets the client's requirements.

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

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

    sudo systemctl get-default
