Installer fail - 7.2.3 Community - Ubuntu 15.10 Server


I'm trying to get Bonitasoft to install on an Ubuntu 15.10 Server, but the installer fails:

Steps to reproduce (from a fresh/patched Ubuntu 15.10 Server ISO)

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install oracle-java7-installer

chmod 750
sudo ./

snip licence agreement blah

Do you want to retrieve data from an existing Bonita BPM workspace?

Warning: If you migrate a workspace that contains a shared repository (Subscription editions), all the repository users must migrate to the new version of Studio.

[1] No, do not migrate data, I will migrate manually, or I do not have any data to migrate.
[2] Yes, migrate a workspace.
Please choose an option [1] :

This one is the BEST answer! is a BPM-Suite. Why on the server and not on a desktop?

I've retried the installation on a 'desktop' build and it worked.

I assume the 'community' version only runs on a desktop build - there is no way to run it as a server, and the subscription version can run as a dedicated server?

I'm not sure about that, but I guess you have to install BonitaBPMCommunity-7.2.3-deploy on the server

Thanks! The download page doesn't seem to give you the option to download the .deploy file, but a quick experiment shows that:


is available. I'll re-try this.

You're welcome. You can download it (and all other files) from sourceforge:
