Linux Client Installation


Worksnaps client version 1.1.20140511 or newer runs on both 64-bit or 32-bit Java environment. On a 64-bit Linux system, 64-bit Java environment is preferred. Therefore, if you are using 64-bit Linux, please check that the default Java is 64-bit. You can do so by executing command "java -version" and check whether the output contains wording of "64-bit". Usually, 64-bit Java environment is the default on 64-bit Linux systems.
