    Hello there, 

    I couldn't help but notice the tutorials for Debian are outdated or next to non-existent. I have been trying for the past few hours to install the proper Java version, since some versions are unsupported. I couldn't get the launcher downloaded as well. These tutorials seem to be targeted in favor of Ubuntu while Debian, father of Ubuntu  is crucial for many distros. It shall not be set aside. Thank you, will be looking closely for updated version of tutorial(s). Nothing  works for me.

    Our Getting Started guide includes Debian by name for installing Java :) 

    Will try it out tonight! 
    As for the launcher, once it’s downloaded. It appears as a .jar file whilst the guide says to run the launcher, it’s not viable for me. It’s a bundle of files inside.

    well speaking that a jar is just a bundle of files, makes sense xd

     

    have you tried actually running the jar via java -jar path/to/jar ?

    @snkbte   chmod -x launcher.jar , in unbuntu you can right click > properties > permissions > allow executing file as program idk if you can do that on deb

    Yes, I did try with the following result:

    java -jar path/to/jar
    Error: Unable to access jarfile path/to/jar

    I did check in properties and the option: 'Is executable' is checked. Running the command gives me: chmod -x launcher.jar
    chmod: cannot access 'launcher.jar': No such file or directory

    'path/to/jar'' needs to be replaced with the file path to your launcher for me it would be java -jar '/home/camal/Desktop/DBLauncher.jar'

    you can get the whole file path by dragging the jar into the terminal, at least in Ubuntu you can.

    normally its called DBLauncher.jar + your terminal needs to be in the dir containing your launcher see above

    Gentleman, do  I need to have OSRS installed first to be able to install the bot client? 

    If so, I can not figure out how to install it. That's the best I could find to no avail.
