Embedded Studio installation on newer Linux versions

From SEGGER - Support Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

On some newer Linux versions root rights for installing Embedded Studio are not granted per default. To counter that issue the following workaround can be applied. Simply execute the following command in the terminal:

xhost si:localuser:root

This workaround has been confirmed to work for:

  • Ubuntu 17.10
  • Fedora 26

...

This list will be updated once other Linux versions have been confirmed to work with that workaround.


Note: We strongly suggest to revoke the root rights after a successfull installation. To do that simply execute the following command in terminal:

xhost -si:localuser:root
