This documentation is related to Capsis installation from an installer, either downloaded from the Download page or provided by a Capsis modeller.
Note: If you are a member of the Capsis co-development community, you have access to the complete version through our versionning system, please refer to the developper installation guide.
In case of trouble during the installation, have a look at the Capsis FAQ.
Capsis may be installed with the same installer on machines under Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
To check the correct version of Java is installed and available, open a Terminal and check the answer to this command (must answer java 1.8.x)
# type this command java -version # you should get this kind of answer (note the "1.8.x") java version "1.8.0_101" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_101-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.101-b13, mixed mode)
You may also look in the java 1.8 download archives.
Run the installer (capsis-setup-X.jar) by double clicking on it and follow the install instructions. If double clicking on a .jar file does not launch the installer on your system, open a terminal, change to the install directory and type
java -jar capsis-setup-file-name.jar
Where can I install Capsis ?
# Risky option ! C:\Users\Hélène\Documents\Master\capsis # Safer C:\capsis
When the install is complete, use the Start menu or the Desktop shortcut to start Capsis.
If you cannot find a shortcut, open a terminal, move (with cd, see below) to the Capsis installation directory (often named 'capsis4/') and execute the capsis launching script.
How to open a terminal
# To start Capsis under Windows, if capsis4/ is in the 'C:\Users\Arthur' folder C:\> cd Users\Arthur\capsis4 C:\Users\Arthur\capsis4> capsis # Note: to move back to the upper directory: C:\Users\Arthur\capsis4> cd .. C:\Users\Arthur>
# To start Capsis under Linux or MacOSX, if capsis4/ is in the '/home/Arthur' folder /$ cd /home/Arthur/capsis4 /home/Arthur/capsis4$ sh capsis.sh
