Installing Protégé on Linux
Protégé 5.5.0 is distributed in the form of a
tar.gz file from the Protege Website, and includes the 64-bit Java Runtime Environment (JRE). It’s therefore not necessary to have Java pre-installed on your computer to run Protege.
To install Protégé:
- Go to the Products page on the Protege website.
- Click the Download for Linux button to download the tar.gz file to your machine.
Unpack the archive. To do this, either use your file explorer and double-click on the archive, and extract it to the desired location, or type in a terminal window:
tar zxvf protege-5.5.0-linux.tar.gz
- Launch Protégé. To launch Protege Desktop, double-click on the run.sh in the ‘‘Protege folder’’ in the file explorer, or type run.sh in a terminal window, once you have changed the directory to the Protege folder.
