Please note that at this time InnoCare doesn't support Linux installations and is unavailable for assisting in these cases
1. A Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
2. The InnoCare software launcher. (See step 2 installation steps)
1. OpenJDK (which includes the JRE) is included, by default, with Linux Mint but is available for all Linux distributions from their respective repositories.
2. Go to https://csd2.innocaresoftware.com:8443/launchers/ics_linux64.zip and choose “Save File”.
Double click the saved file to open it in Archive Manager.
Click Extract and then on the next pane choose where you would like to keep the extracted folder.
The extracted folder is called “icsLaunch_linux64”.
Within that folder, go to the bin sub-folder and double click the file “icsLaunch”.
You will then be asked “Do you want to run icsLaunch or display its contents?” - Select Run
This will start the Innocare Software Launcher.
You can choose to Browse for your JRE or, if you are running Linux Mint (or similar) you can simply paste /usr/lib/jvm/default-java in to the “Selected JDK directory” box.
Next click “Launch Innocare Software” and you should be presented with:
1. Microsoft hold copyrights on many True Type fonts but freely allows their use as long as you acknowledge their licence. To install them look for “Ttf-mscorefonts-installer” in your software repository.
2. The advantage of using or installing OpenJDK from the software repositories is that it will be kept up to date systematically along with other regular updates. There are other excellent JDK options (such as Zulu) that work perfectly but they might not update automatically.
