    Tips

    • You can run the archive file without any parameters. The installation will run in an interactive mode and you will be prompted to enter the necessary information during the installation. You can as well run the archive file with certain options. For more details please refer to the User Guide of the product the chapter 'Distribution'.
    • The installation of the licensing service and license activation requires ROOT rights.
    • We recommend to run the installation of the FineReader Engine under ROOT user.
    • To change the current user to the ROOT use the command 'su root' (if you have a password of the ROOT) or the command 'sudo su' (the password of the current user is required).
  2. Read and Accept End User License Agreement (EULA):
  3. Continue the installation by entering 'y':
