HI'


I want to install this 32 bit program on 64 bit Pepparmint.
Link to progam: https://jfsbokforing.se/JFSFaktDemo.html

I have solved it before on LinuxMint 64 bit, but now I want it to work on Pepparmint.

If you can get it working on Linux Mint, it should work in Peppermint with the same instructions.

Normally I'd test the installation for you and provide instructions .. but as this application only comes as an unreadable binary executable I'm not willing to risk my system security by running the installer.

If you want to try it, run these commands in sequence:-

First install a couple  of 32bit dependencies
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libxtst6:i386 libxi6:i386
now change directory to your desktop
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop
download the installer achive
Code: [Select]
wget http://www.jfsbokforing.se/uppdatering/JFSFakt_unix_1_0_5.zip
unpack the archive
Code: [Select]
unzip JFSFakt_unix_1_0_5.zip
make the unpacked installer executable
Code: [Select]
chmod +x JFSFakt_unix_1_0_5.sh
then run it
Code: [Select]
./JFSFakt_unix_1_0_5.sh



It appears to be Java based so **might** require the Oracle version of Java runtime (rather than the open source one) .. let me know if it doesn't run properly
