Installing Callbar App on Linux Cent OS 7-1708 (Beta)

Follow

Note: Auto-updates are not supported yet.

 

RPM Linux Package installation (CentOS)

Prerequisites:

To have Callbar App working on Linux CentOs 7-1708 with 64 bit platform, some dependencies must be installed first.

 

Dependencies:

  • EPEL-Release (info)
  • libappindicator (info)
  • libXSrcnSaver (info, this dependency is needed after the Linux OS updates)

 

Note: Without the above dependencies installed you will get the following error:

error: failed dependencies:
      libappindicator is needed by Callbar-[VERSION]

 

Installing Dependencies:

These install instructions are using ‘yum’ as it is the primary tool for getting, installing, deleting, querying and managing Linux RPM. If your system is using a different tool you don’t need to install yum:

 sudo yum install epel-release
 sudo yum install libappindicator
 sudo yum install libXScrnSaver
 

Installing Callbar:

sudo rpm -i Callbar-[VERSION].rpm

 

Uninstalling Callbar:

rpm -e Callbar

 

Using Callbar App with Talkdesk ID:  

As we are currently in the process of rolling out Talkdesk ID, in all distributions of Linux it is yet only supported through Chrome browser. In order to use it, you’ll need to have Chrome installed.

If you have any problems installing Chrome on your machine please follow this link.

    Installed and tested on Fedora 28 successfully 2018-02-01. First post @ TD to say: thanks for supporting Linux!

    Working Fedora 28 install:
    download @ https://downloadcallbar.talkdesk.com/download.html?package=rpm
    sudo dnf install

    I had no idea what the binary name was going to be called, and tab completion didn't work since it turns out it's not installed in the [default] path.

    To find out where (most) stuff installed:
    sudo find / -type f -regextype "posix-extended" -iregex "^.*(talkdesk|callbar|electron).*$"

    Binary = /opt/Callbar/callbar
    Main install dir = /opt/Callbar/*

    Possibly Gnome-specific stuff installed in:
    /usr/share/applications/
    /usr/share/icons/
    (I use Gnome fedora)

    User config & logs, other stuff I'm not familiar with:
    $HOME/.config/Callbar/*
