Pre-requisites for HTMLRenderer in 17.1 on Linux

Postby AndyS|Dyalog on Wed May 15, 2019 2:14 pm

This post is a little previous as we have not yet released 17.1. However, the documentation will refer to this post so that we can more easily keep the list of pre-reqs up to date.

This post lists the pre-reqs which are needed in order to use the HTMLRenderer for various versions of commonly used distributions. The pre-reqs for installing 17.1 on Linux can be found here.

If you try to create an HTMLRenderer object and get a LIMIT ERROR, the most likely causes are:
    ENABLE_CEF has been set to 0
    You are missing pre-req filesets
    You are not running in a supported environment (perhaps X has not been configured
There is more information in the HTMLRenderer User Guide - the technical overview. It also explains how to determine if you have missing pre-reqs.

Below is a list of distributions/versions which we have tested, as of 2019-05-15, with latest filesets installed.

We have included the commands needed to install the pre-reqs, but remember that it will need to be run with root privileges - either su beforehand or run sudo command. In some cases there are other commands that could be used and you can always use the distribution's GUI-based software management tool instead.

      Distribution    : Actions
Debian 8.2, 9.8, 9.9 : no pre-reqs needed
Fedora 29, 30 : dnf install libXScrnSaver
Linux Mint 18.0, 19.0 : apt-get install libnss3 (may need apt-get update first)
openSUSE 15.0 : no pre-reqs needed
CentOS/RedHat 6 : 17.1 not supported
CentOS/RedHat 7 : HTMLRenderer not supported
RedHat 8 : no pre-reqs needed
Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 : no pre-reqs
Ubuntu 19.04 : apt-get install libgtk2.0-bin
