[TAR] How to install FileBot on Linux / FreeBSD / Solaris / any Unix OS

1.
Create a new folder and then cd into that folder:

Code: Select all

mkdir filebot-portable && cd filebot-portable

2.
Run the installer/tar.sh script:

Code: Select all

sh -xu <<< "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/filebot/plugins/master/installer/tar.sh)"

3.
Run filebot -script fn:sysinfo to check if everything is working.



:idea: The generic Linux package requires Java 8. You may install OpenJDK 8 via the package manager on most Linux distributions:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

This also works on Arch Linux as long as you install this package from the AUR instead of the apt get listed package. On Arch it is jre8-openjdk and Java-openJFX. Currently the portable version of filebot is the only one availible for arch as the two versions from the AUR have been taken down.

I am on FreeBSD 12, when trying to install filebot I get the following error

Code: Select all

~/filebot-portable# sh filebot.sh -script fn:sysinfo
filebot.sh: java: not found
which version of java should I use/search for?

The *-portable.tar.xz package is compiled for Java 8.
