    The installer shell script is meant for RHLE 5, which distro are you attempting to install it on?

    Digo,

    Great hearing from you. I was actually going to call you around Christmas time/New Years as I had a LONworks JACE that died on us and I was going to see if you knew how to resurect it.

    Anyhow, I am running Ubuntu 12.04. Love it!

    I was able to install AX on Ubuntu quite quickly. What are your problems?

    Paul,

    I think I am doing something wrong, or my configuration is set up in Ubuntu incorrectly.

    So here's what I have:

    I downloaded the file and it went in as a .zip file in Downloads. I then created a file called niagara in the Home file.

    Nothing seemed to work righ in the terminal window. So now I moved everything to the home file and extracted it to the same Home file. when I run bash install.sh I get the license agreement etc. Once I scroll throuigh this I then enter yes to Agree. It starts to do it's thing and then quickly I get:
    current user bas
    does not have the proper permissions to create a file in the directory
    "/etc/init.d". Please restart the NiagaraAX installer as root or as a user
    who has permissions to create files in the directory "/etc/init.d".

    Okay,

    What I did was as follows:

    cd niagara

    sudo bash install.sh

    Then it took off. Now where is it installed and how do I open it? :-)

    Can you not access the link I posted abbove on niagara-central?
    read up on docs\EngNotes\LinuxSupervisor\docEn_LinuxSuperviso r.pdf

    To start the platform daemon:
    <user>@<host>:/usr/bin# niagaradctl start

    To verify that the daemon has started:
    <user>@<host>:/usr/bin# niagaradctl status

    Workbench can be launched:
    from the Workbench icon on the desktop
    from the Applications Menu (the suggested way).
    Running wb from the console.

    No,

    I did access the document, and thanks for the link.

    I'm not seeing the icons so I'm trying other things.

    Digo so I did this, but there is no icon. What do I need to type into Terminal to Launch it. Daemon is running.

    Good evening,

    I also try to install Niagara AX under Linux Ubuntu, but I have a little problem.

    Everything seems to work well, but I have some problems on the platform when running.

    Each time I try to use the "Change Date/Time" under Platform Administration, I have an error with connection reset informations. On the log I can see :
    com.tridium.platform.daemon.DaemonResponseExceptio n: Request to platform daemon at localhost failed:

    at com.tridium.platform.daemon.BDaemonSession.handleX MLResponse(BDaemonSession.java:2076)

    My Second problem is the analysis of TimeZone which generate an exception :
