ThingWorx Foundation 9 Trial installer fails to install on Debian Linux

After the installer for windows failed, I tried linux.

 

This is what I got:

---

There has been an error.

Failed to install dependencies: Chef Client

The application will exit now.

---

I installed the Oracle Java 8 JDK 202 and put it into the path, same I did on Windows.

 

Is there ANY installer that actually works?

The Linux installer supports CentOS, Fedora, and other systems based on the Red Hat family. It does not support Debian.

Wow.

 

I need to install a specific linux to make it work?

 

Why is that?

Yes, the free trial installer works with linux distributions based on Red Hat.

 

One of the main differences is Red Hat uses yum to manage installed software and Debian uses apt-get. This is only a limitation of the free trial installer. The full, licensed version of ThingWorx has more options
