    • At the prompt type: sh ./PDFStudio_unix.sh. This will start the installer.
  • Notes
    • You need to install a Java 8 virtual machine. When available, we strongly recommend using the JVM distributed by Sun Oracle as our experience has been that other JVMs introduce a lot of issues in PDF Studio (GTK issue with toolbar spacing issues, no SWT support for native file browser, other bugs with image rendering). You can download one from Sun’s Java web site or contact your OS manufacturer.
    • Native features such as OCR and scanning are not available in Unix.
