Unable to install Datameer Desktop on Linux


Hello Datameer Community,

Support requested that I reach out to you for help installing their product. Since I'm not an enterprise customer, they cannot answer any questions as to why their product will not install properly.

I'm running Fedora 24. I have 8GB of RAM. I was able to install the Datameer package without any errors. When I try to find the Datameer application on my system, it does not appear to exist.

    Hi Tyler, we're glad you're here. Yes, support tickets do require a support subscription but usage of the Datameer Community is available for all. The Datameer Community is moderated by many technical team members including support agents, solutions engineers and members of our product team. 

    If using an RPM/Debian installer file, Datameer installs to /usr/local/Datameer-<Version>-<HadoopVersion> 

    Datameer uses a binary called "conductor.sh" so if it is not found in /usr/local, I'd recommend executing the following command to search the filesystem for this binary: 

    find / -name conductor.sh

    This is mentioned in our Installation Guide and includes next steps for configuring Datameer for the initial start up and then starting the instance.
