How to use an install key under Linux
« on: December 29, 2014, 03:57:00 am »

The documentation talks about double clicking in Windows Explorar or Finder.
What about Linux?

Double clicking does nothing.

Depends on your OS.

I use Ubuntu and found that this advice worked for me:
Important, SSL certificate authority path for non-debian users

For future, it helps to note the distribution you're using along with its bit count.

Hope you're on the straight and narrow now..  ;)

Yeah, I always use the terminal to install the license on Ubuntu, personally. I probably should add that to the Ubuntu tutorial along with getting copy and paste working using autocutsel. I'll try to do this later tonight or tomorrow.

Good idea. Up to you but I'd suggest pointing the reader to the relevant links. As an observation, this title - "Important, SSL certificate authority path for non-debian users", doesn't immediately make me think of licence key installation. I went there because I knew about it from time before.

I'm using Kubuntu 64 bits and it works.

Thanks to your help, because the procedure isn't intuitive and it's hard to guess without your help.
