The download instructions in julialang.org say to install using a furnished .dmg file, but I don’t see it. Where is it?
On the downloads page: Download Julia
Thank you; I’d visited that page many times but didn’t realize that the “64” linked to a disk image. I was able to install and test Jula 1.5 with my graphics applications successfully.
I want also to install Julia 1.5 in Ubuntu 17 (running in VirtualBox) but the only link I found is to a compressed image that Linux could not open, and the recommended
sudo apt install julia
failed to get a needed lock. Should I ask this a new topic?
You can use Homebrew https://brew.sh
brew install julia
brew upgrade for updates.
You can use jill on both platforms. I love it. It basically just automates the “download from website and install” part. Super simple.
Thanks for your reply.
Julia was already installed in my Ubuntu 17 VM running in VirtualBox under MacOS 10.14, but whenever I try to use Gtk,
it crashes Ubuntu hard. The information I found on installing jill said to use
sudo bash -ci “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abelsiqueira/jill/master/jill.sh)”
I did this in my Ubuntu 17 Terminal and got
Error 404 File not found
But the same URL works in MacOS 10.14.
Other things-- Firefox, editor, and very complicated Python graphics applications-- work perfectly in my Ubuntu 17 VM.
I would appreciate info from anybody who has run Julia successfully in Ubuntu 17. I’m having difficulty installing Ubuntu 20,
but I’ll try Julia in that when I get it installed.
