[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)"
:idea: This script will install the *-portable.tar.xz (requires Java 11) package.


3.
Run filebot -script fn:sysinfo to check if everything is working.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.

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.

Why would you wrestle with Java 11 when Java 8 is recommended and easily available?
