Installing the Secure Browser for Linux (64-bit)
This procedure installs the Secure Browser on desktop computers running one of the Linux distributions listed in the above table. These instructions may vary for your individual Linux distribution.
- Uninstall any previous versions of the Secure Browser by deleting the directory containing it.
- Obtain the root or super-user password for the computer on which you are installing the Secure Browser.
- Click the Download Browser link above. A dialog window opens. If prompted for a download location, select the desktop.
- Open the terminal and do the following:
su [UserName] to switch to a super-user or root user. When prompted, enter the super-user or root user password you obtained in step 2.
./install-icon.sh to run the
./install-icon.sh file as an executable. When prompted, enter the super-user or root user password obtained in step 2.
su [UserName] to switch back to the standard user. When prompted, enter the standard user password.
./install-icon.sh to install icons for the standard user.
- The script installs all dependent libraries and supported voice packs, and creates a MTSecureBrowser icon on the desktop. In Fedora 30, the icon is installed in the Charm.
- Ensure all backgrounds jobs, such as virus scans or software updates, are scheduled outside of test windows. For example, if your testing takes place between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., schedule background jobs outside of these hours.
- If text-to-speech testing is performed on this computer, reboot it.
- From the desktop, double-click the MTSecureBrowser icon to launch the browser. An Untrusted App Launcher error message appears.
- Click Trust and Launch. The student login screen appears. The browser fills the entire screen and hides any panels or launchers.
- To exit the browser, click X in the upper-right corner of the screen.
