    Debian 7.4 Installation Problem

    I am a newbie to Lianja, just attempted an install for evalutation on Debian v.7.4 w/XFCE desktop.
    changed permissions on file (+x), ran install as root (seemed to run fine), however when I finished, there were no desktop icons and/or no shortcuts in the menu for any of the Lianja programs. I did run the app. center (I believe its called) from CLI at /opt/lianja/...

    Is this normal that I get no application startup icons of any sort?

    Also, The default version of python for Debian 7.4 is Python 2.7.3. Lianja requirements state Python 2.4. Is this an issue?

    Please advise...

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    It may be something particular to Debian 7.4, we'll take a look. Can I assume that you are running 64 bit? In the meantime you should be able to enter "lianja" at the shell to start the App Builder.

    I was running Debian 7.4 32-bit with XFCE desktop when I tried this initial install.

    I'm now changing my machine back to Debian 7.4 64-bit with XFCE desktop (for other reasons), will do a test install on this 64-bit platform and post results back here by tomorrow noon.

    The shortcuts only get created in gnome or KDE.

    You out can create your own and point it at /opt/lianja/bin/lianja

    lianja supports python 2.4. 2.6 and 2.7.

    if you run ldd on the lianja.exe file you can see what dependencies it's looking for.

    OK, I'll attempt to manual create, and let you know what happens today on the 64-bit Debian 7.4 w/XFCE.

    Could you provide a list of shortcuts/names the default install creates, and the files they should point to?

    Thank you for such fast and good help. Refreshing, and inspiring.

    Dave

    We have had it running with XFCE so i'd be interested to know what the dependencies are,

    If you look at the lianja file it is a bash script that determines what version of Python is installed and fires up the correct exe based on that. The reason for this is that we have built against the Python API (which is embedded into the exe) and that is different on each of the before mentioned python versions.

    Lianja/VFP, PHP and JavaScript are embedded also.

    Hi Dave,

    Hope this helps:

    It does pick up that it's Python 2.7 and (for 64 bit) runs the lianja27_x86_64.exe.

    Thanks everyone for your help so far...

    I just did a test install of Lianja app. builder on Debian v.7.4 64-Bit with XFCE Desktop.

    Installed per instructions, i.e. chmod +x filename, run filename as root...

    RESULTS:
    1.) Install runs fine, no apparent errors.
    2.) Go to make application launcher, "permission denied" on /opt/lianja/. Looked at the folder permissions, changed lianja folder from root:root 770 to root:root 775. Can now access to make application launcher and point icon to graphics file, per Yvonne's illustration.
    3.) I look under the lianja folder, I'm wondering about the permissions I see, root:root 777 on just about everything, which seems like a security risk to me (totally open to "others")? Not completely sure, but install may be having a permissions problem.
    4.) Go to run lianja app. center as regular linux user, from (now functioning) application launcher. "Sorry your Lianja trial license has expired or is invalid." I just now installed, and did not change any system dates.
    5.) Go to run lianja app. center from CLI as root - runs fine. Go to run lianja app. center from CLI as regular user, same error message "Sorry your Lianja trial license has expired or is invalid."

    Please advise ---

    Thanks,
    Dave

    The App Center does not use licensing.

    The App Builder does.

    Someone in support will look into this.

    We use Linux extensively but not XFCE.

    Trial license errors are paths or permission related.

    we don't install 777 so something odd about the installation.

    installs fine on other Linux distros including Ubuntu.

    someone in support will test install on Debian 7.4 XFCE.

    Hi Dave,

    It may be a difference in root's umask. I installed with the defaults (Debian and Lianja) and had no problems creating and using the launchers. For the App Builder license error, please check that your user has read and execute permissions on the /opt/lianja/licenses directory itself and read permission on the files in the /opt/lianja/licenses directory.

    Regards,

    Yvonne
