How to Install DbVisualizer on Linux

In order to install DbVisualizer on Linux system (I am currently install it on my Linux Mint 19), you will need to have Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your system. You may read my previous tutorial to install Oracle Java JRE on Linux Mint 19

Step 1. Download the DbVisualizer installation file

If you are running Ubuntu or Debian Linux, download the DEB version. If you are going to install it on Fedora or any other RPM based Linux, download the RPM version. Or, you can also use the setup file (.sh) which supports almost any Linux distribution. 

Step 2. Install the file

Installing from Setup file (.sh)

Open Terminal and use the following command to install DbVisualizer from the setup file

sudo chmod +x dbvis_linux_10_0_15.sh
sudo ./dbvis_linux_10_0_15.sh

Then, follow the installation wizard on your screen

Installing the DEB file

Use this command to install the DEB file

sudo dpkg -i dbvis_linux_10_0_15.deb

Installing the RPM file

This command should work to install the RPM file on Fedora

sudo rpm -Uvh dbvis_linux_10_0_15.rpm
