Non-Multilib or Multilib

Make the installation script executable:

chmod +x xpontus-1.0.0RC2.sh

The installation script is interactive. The installation directory can be selected when prompted by the installer. XPontus will install a directory structure under the chosen installation directory. It's recommended that XPontus be installed in a prefix such as /opt/xpontus.


The script that launches XPontus will fail unless you are running from the directory containing the script. Correct this so that XPontus can be run from any directory or using a launcher. Replace /opt/xpontus with the prefix you used.

sed -i 's@`echo $PWD`@/opt/xpontus' /opt/xpontus/run.sh
ln -svf /opt/xpontus/run.sh /usr/bin/xpontus
