  1. Download the correct installer.

    titlealternate installers compatible with performance enhanced FUSE client

    If you intend to heavily use the iRODS FUSE client, it requires version 4.1.9 of the iCommands to be installed. Here are the installers for this version.

  2. From a terminal window, run the installer with  sh .

    For example, if you were installing iCommands on an Ubuntu 14.04 system as the user cyverse-user, you would do something like the following example. The iCommands would end up being placed in the directory /home/cyverse-user/icommands.

    Code Block
    prompt> sh irods-icommands-4.1.10-ubuntu-14.installer
    Where would you like to install it? [/home/cyverse-user] 
    Expanding contents under /home/cyverse-user.
    Updating .bashrc
    To make the changes take effect in the current shell, please source your bashrc file, i.e., enter either `. ~/.bashrc`. or `bash`.

    Important: To make the changes take effect in the current shell, you will need to source your .bashrc file by entering either `. ~/.bashrc`.

    titleWhen .bashrc isn't writable or bash isn't being used

    If you aren't using bash, or if your .bashrc file can't be edited, the environment variable IRODS_PLUGINS_HOME will need to be set to $INSTALL_BASE/icommands/plugins/, where $INSTALL_BASE is the directory you provided to the installer.

    The iCommands executables are in the directory $INSTALL_BASE/icommands.

    It is also recommended that you add

    this directory

    the iCommands to your path.

  3. Open a new terminal window, if necessary, and run ienv to check that the new version was installed.


  4. Continue to Step 2 to configure iCommands.
