Mbed Studio IDE installation on Linux hangs

Hello,

I have tried to install Mbed Studio IDE on Linux Ununtu 18.04. However the installation hangs after accepting the license terms:

zoli@zoli-ubuntu:~/Downloads$ sudo ./MbedStudio-0.9.1.sh 
[sudo] password for zoli: 
In order to continue the installation process for Mbed Studio, please review the license agreement.
Please, press ENTER to continue

Supplementary Terms ******

... 

Do you accept the license terms? [yes|no]
>>>>yes

Could someone give some tips how to proceed?
Thank you in advance.

It took more time for the installation script to respond than I expected and I just ran out of patience. After waiting several minutes it finally got installed. Then I needed to install a missing ‘libcurl4-openssl-dev’ package and now works fine :slight_smile:

Hi Zoltan,

Thank you for the feedback. Yes, Linux version of Mbed Studio is very new and we are still in the process of improving it to make the user experience as good as possible. We have recently added a better messaging during installation. It will be available in upcoming release.
The reason why installation seems slow on Linux, compared to other platforms, is the fact that Linux installer for Mbed Studio is shipped without tools. All tools are being downloaded during installation. This process make take a while and is highly dependent on your internet connection.

Do not hesitate to let us know about any issues on Linux or ideas for improvements. We really appreciate it.

Thanks,
