Installation around SAP GUI on Ubuntu 16.04


I tried multiple times to find a guide how to install SAP GUI 740 under Ubuntu 16.04.

Haven't yet managed to get the GUI installed under Ubuntu 16.04.

Any hint is Welcome.

best regards

      Finally I managed to get the installation fixed on Ubuntu 16.04.

      Run following command from Terminal:

      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
      sudo apt update
      sudo apt install oracle-java8-installer

      Then download . JAR package

      1.) Right Mouse click

      2.) TAB "Permissions"

      3.) Set check "Run as program

      4.) Double click .JAR package; installation is taking place

      5.) Add system

      Thanks guys for getting me on the road.

      best regards

    Hello Alfons,

    Have you downloaded SAPGUI for Java? And then tried to install it?

    Note that you need to have installed the JavaFX package.

    If you are facing any error during the installation, then copy/paste the same here.

    Kind regards,
