Quick installation guide

Installing Salomon is optional and not mandatory in order to use it.

Nevertheless, you can quickly install Salomon via copy-and-paste. Open a terminal, copy the lines below and paste them into it. You may need to adjust the version number, the following example is for version 1.19.0.

Depending on your distribution, there are two typical ways.

Using sudo

In case you are running Ubuntu or its derivates (such as Linux Mint, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu etc.), sudo is the preferred way for administrative actions.

version="1.19.0"
releases="https://github.com/urbanware-org/salomon/releases"
wget --content-disposition ${releases}/download/${version}/salomon-release-${version}.tar.gz
tar xfv salomon-release-${version}.tar.gz
sudo salomon-${version}/install.sh -i

Without sudo

Another way is to use su in case sudo is not configured or you do not want to use it.

version="1.19.0"
releases="https://github.com/urbanware-org/salomon/releases"
wget --content-disposition ${releases}/download/${version}/salomon-release-${version}.tar.gz
tar xfv salomon-release-${version}.tar.gz
su -c "salomon-${version}/install.sh -i"
