Linux installation commands

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

On a Linux computer you run as root user (or using sudo) the downloaded installer, .bin file (note that you have the correct installation, the 32 or 64 bit version, used, otherwise the installation will not succeed). Before you start installing Linux, you might need to give the .bin file rights to execute (chmod + x).

In summary, you need the following commands to install BICS on a Linux or Apple computer:
 > sudo chmod +x BICS2-Install32-x.x.x.xxxx.bin
 > sudo ./BICS2-Install32-x.x.x.xxxx.bin

or (64 bit version):
 > sudo chmod +x BICS2-Install64-x.x.x.xxxx.bin
 > sudo ./BICS2-Install64-x.x.x.xxxx.bin

or (as root):
 > su (and then log in with your root password)
 > chmod +x BICS2-Installxx-x.x.x.xxxx.bin
 > ./BICS2-Installxx-x.x.x.xxxx.bin
