Appendix A: Installing StreamLab on the Command Line

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

You can also install in text mode, which does not display the graphical installation wizard. To do so, enter

sudo ./StreamLab-X.Y.Z-x64.run --mode text

 

where X.Y.Z represent the release and version numbers, as in SQLstream-StreamLab-2.0.0.run.

Note: substitute sStudio or clienttools to install either as a standalone in text mode.

Note: if you are logged in as a super user, you do not need to include "sudo".

The text-mode installer performs the same steps as the graphical one, but displays its prompts and messages in the console window.

By default, the installer will run in graphical mode, GTK. If this is not possible, it will run in xwindow mode.

If there is no graphical environment available it will fall back to text mode.

Viewing Options for Command-line Installation
