- Getting started
Let’s walk through installing Euphoria 4.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.
Head over to the Downloads page. The links under “Download from Github” do not include a release for 64-bit Linux. Scroll down to the section labeled Beta for Testing: Euphoria 4.1.0 Beta 2. These are actually the same files in the releases at the top of the page. Download the Linux file for your architecture.
Note: While it is technically possible to run 32-bit applications in 64-bit Linux, I wouldn’t suggest it. Doing so introduces an entire 32-bit runtime system into your operating system that is entirely unnecessary. (Unlike Windows, where the 32-bit subsystem is forever and always a part of the 64-bit system.)
These are the files you’ll want to download:
|Linux 32-bit||euphoria-4.1.0-Linux-x86-57179171dbed.tar.gz||14,032 KB|
|Linux 64-bit||euphoria-4.1.0-Linux-x64-57179171dbed.tar.gz||14,358 KB|
Step 1: Terminal
Click the Dash button, type
terminal, and then click Terminal.
Step 2: Extract
cd Downloads and press Enter.
tar xzf euphoria-4.1.0-*.tar.gz and press Enter.
Step 3: Install
sudo mv euphoria-4.1.0-Linux-x64/ /usr/local/ and press Enter.
This directory and all its files should be owned by root.
sudo chown -R root:root /usr/local/euphoria-4.1.0-Linux-x64 and press Enter.
Step 1: Edit profile
We need to edit your Bash profile. Type
nano ~/.bashrc and press Enter.
Scroll to the bottom of the file. Press Escape then / to get there immediately.
Step 2: Insert path
Add the following line to the end of the file.
To save the changes, press Ctrl+O (for Write Out). To exit Nano, press Ctrl+X (for Exit).
Step 3: Verify installation
Close Terminal and open it again for the profile changes to take effect.
eui -v and press Enter. This should display the currently installed version of Euphoria.
That’s it! You’re all done.
