Install Tehama Client on Linux
Instructions are for: the Linux Tehama Client version 21.01.0
Downloaded from: the Tehama Web UI, current release
Supported Linux versions: Ubuntu Linux 18.04
Note: These instructions have been tested on and optimized for the Google Chrome browser for the Ubuntu 18.04 Linux desktop environment. An exception is the Plasma KDE desktop environment; there is a known bug when running Google Chrome browser in this environment that prevents the use of the Tehama Web UI's single-click CONNECT experience. When running these instructions on a Plasma KDE desktop environment, use the Firefox browser.
