How to install katalon in ubuntu 18

what are the commands to install katalon studio in ubuntu 18.0.1

@waghr74, please download Linux package from our website and try it. For the prerequisites to use Katalon in Ubuntu, please refer to

Install OpenJDK 8 on your Ubuntu (NOT Oracle JDK). You can find installation steps from here: install /. Make sure that after installation , your OpenJDK information is displayed when you execute ‘java -version’ command: 2.

If you get stuck like me with the problem of the Katalon GUI not showing up after a brief display of the “K” logo for a while…
Make sure your Java installation all right. Run the below and ensure you have the katalon tool GUI opening …

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/

Has anybody actually got Katalon to work on Ubuntu. I am running on 19.04 and have java 11 and none of the above is helpful. I still see the brief splash screen and nothing more.

Hi @gopinath.subbegowda.I wonder if this tool only works on ubuntu 18.04 because it does not work for me despite having done all the steps.

Please take a look at this script . The best way to execute Katalon tests on Linux is via Docker containers though.

We have sample configurations for different Buy Boxing Gloves cloud CIs here . Many of them offer free plans.

Hello @gopinath.subbegowda sir i trying to install the katalon in ubuntu server but i did’t find way to install the katalon through command line,Cloud you pls help me.

I am also facing same issue.


I had Katalon working on Manjaro Linux up to late ast year for website testing. There was a major engine change that happened to Katalon this year and I’m not sure if it actual broke for Linux. I am not seeing any responses to the Linux threads from Katalon Support. Never mind the documentation is poor. So the likelyhood is I will recommend to my company to cancel our paid licenses (Which are presently on the Windows platform).

I’m very disappointed seeing the numerous messages in this forum without resolution.

Its ok if Katalon is not pursuing Linux, atleast come out and let the community know. This is what the Product Manager is for.

P.S. Also interesting that no e-mail notifications are being sent from the forums based on the Katalon Administration settings.
