Before you start...

The Lianja App Center is the desktop client for running deployed Lianja Apps. If you want to develop Apps, you need the Lianja App Builder.

Do not run the Lianja App Center installer if you have already installed the Lianja App Builder. The Lianja App Builder installer includes the Lianja App Center. The Lianja App Center installer should only be used for desktop client installations.

RHEL / Centos 8.x

The required libnsl package is no longer provided in the OS glibc package, so should be installed separately.

$ sudo yum install libnsl


  • Make sure root has execute permission on the downloaded file.

Open up a Terminal window. (e.g. on Ubuntu right click on the desktop and select 'Open Terminal').

Since 5.1 the distro is a compressed tar file.

$ cd 
$ cd Downloads
$ tar xvf LianjaAppCenter-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.tar.gz
$ chmod +x LianjaAppCenter-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin

Prior to 5.1 it was not a compressed tar file.

$ cd 
$ cd Downloads
$ chmod +x LianjaAppCenter-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin
  • As root or using sudo, run the installer.
$ sudo ./LianjaAppCenter-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin
