Installing the Harlequin Core SDK on Linux


  • Users should be familiar with the Linux command prompt.
  • LDK users require an Internet connection.
  • The installation should be done from a user account with superuser or other system access privileges.

  • To install the Harlequin Core SDK with LDK security, you require a Product Key, which is a long string of letters and numbers (for example, aaaaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeeeeeeeeeee), which GGS supplies.

During installation, use the default options in all cases (unless a special installation is a known requirement).

  1. To install the Harlequin Core SDK:
    1. Double-click the .zip file and drag the install_HHR_linux64.bin file to your working folder.
    2. Open a terminal window and do su.
    3. Enter the admin password.
    4. Enter the following two commands:
      • export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
      • export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    5. Drag the .bin file onto the terminal window to run it.

  2. Complete the InstallAnyWhere dialog boxes:
    1. Read the license agreement, scroll to the bottom, and accept.
    2. Select the HHR and LDK together (default).
    3. Select the installation folder.
    4. Select where to Create Product Icons.
    5. Review configuration settings and click Install.

Make a note of the installation location, as you need to navigate to this folder later to run the RIP.

If you are using LDK security with a license key:

  1. Before finishing, the Installer asks if you wish to activate the product now or later, select Activate Product Now. Paste your key into the Product Key field, and then press Next.
  2. On the Product activation succeeded window, click OK.
  3. Click Done.

If activation fails, please speak to your account manager or support.
