[TAR] How do I manually install FileBot on Linux / BSD / Solaris / any Unix OS?

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

Shell: Select all

mkdir filebot-portable && cd filebot-portable


2.
If you are running on Java 17 or higher, run the installer/tar.sh script:

Shell: Select all

curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/filebot/plugins/master/installer/tar.sh | sh -xu
If you are running on Java 8, run the installer/tar-jdk8.sh script:

Shell: Select all

curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/filebot/plugins/master/installer/tar-jdk8.sh | sh -xu

:idea: Please read and execute the installer/tar.sh script line by line to make sure that you understand each step in the installation. DO NOT blindly copy & run curl | sh commands. Please read Piping curl to s(hell) for details.

:idea: The installer/tar.sh script uses sha256sum to verify the download. If sha256sum is not available on your platform, then you can skip this line.

:idea: If you need to manually install java, please read Java Installer / Installation on Linux for detailed instructions.

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

Shell: Select all

filebot -script fn:sysinfo
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
