Linux installation

  1. The installation media comes in the form of a compressed TAR archive—a file with .tar.gz extension. Copy it into a suitable working directory, for example, the home directory of your user.
  2. If it doesn't exist, create the root directory for expert.ai software with this shell command:

    sudo mkdir /opt/expert.ai 
    
  3. Extract the contents of the archive with this shell command:

    sudo tar xzf compressedtarfilepath -C /opt/expert.ai

    where compressedtarfilepath is the path of the compressed TAR file. 4. The tar command creates a sub-directory inside /opt/expert.ai. The name of this sub-directory depends on the version of the installation media and has the following structure:

    idea-IC-version

    where version is the version of the IntelliJ platform Studio is based upon.

    Change the current directory to the bin directory contained in that sub-directory, for example:

    cd /opt/expert.ai/idea-IC-201.6668/bin    
    
  4. Run the installation script:

    ./idea.sh
