Katalon IDE does not launch in GNU/Linux, shows greeter and then closes


#1

I have dowloaded from the website the katalon studio IDE in Ubuntu 18.04LTS MATE edition. After downloading the Katalon_Studio_Linux_64-6.1.5.tar.gz and exsdtracting via this command:

tar -xvf Katalon_Studio_Linux_64-6.1.5.tar.gz afterwards I launch it via the following command sequence:

cd Katalon_Studio_Linux_64-6.1.5
./katalon

It shows the Greeder for Katalon IDE but then for an unexpected reason I have not any other window oppened or anything to indicate me that Katalon Studio works. Also I have no idea where any application logs exist.

I would appreciate if any help for that.

Hi,
please be sure of the java version installed. I faced the same when java was not the good version
currently i am running :
java -version
openjdk version “1.8.0_212”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_212-8u212-b03-0ubuntu1.18.04.1-b03)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.212-b03, mixed mode)

instructions for 18.04 as follows for us :
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk openjdk-8-jdk-headless`

hope this helps.
BR,
