thinkorswim installer [Solved]

Postby johnlvs2run » Sun Nov 30, 2008 23:50

The thinkorswim installer is on my desktop, but when clicked it gives the message
"the file ... thinkorswim_installer.sh is a binary, saving it will result in a corrupt file.

Could someone provide the steps to install this program on Sabayon.

Thanks.

You are gonna have to contact them for directions or look for a readme file. Usually anytime you download the source file there is a readme file that tells you how to install it. I highly doubt clicking on it is the solution. Most of the time you have to run commands from a terminal to install source files.

I see they have a live help right on their website - might want to give that a whirl, but I would be shocked if their wasn't directions with it.

Thanks!

It worked. :)

Code: Select all
    cd Desktop

Now lets make the installation script executable.
    chmod +x thinkorswim_installer.sh

We are ready to install the software now. Just type in the following command.
    ./thinkorswim_installer.sh

If you get an xserver error just run the command again with the “-c” argument like this:
    ./thinkorswim_installer.sh -c

Code: Select all
Now just follow the on screen instructions. Let it install in the default directory “/usr/local/thinkorswim”. Once that is done installing we need to change the permissions on the installation folder so that it doesn’t stall on the update page. To do this we need super user privileges.
    su

Now lets change the permissions on the entire thinkorswim folder recursively.
    chmod 777 /usr/local/thinkorswim -R

Code: Select all
Thats it, you are all set now. You can run the program by navigating to /usr/local/thinkorswim and clicking on the thinkorswim executable file.

You can also create a shortcut in your start menu. In KDE just right click on the kmenu and go to edit. Add a new menu item and enter the following in the path field:
    /usr/local/thinkorswim/thinkorswim.sh
