Install LinceBI on macOS 11 Big Sur or later

Install LinceBI

1. Install Zulu Community OpenJDK 8 from the DMG installer.

Link to Zulu Community’s official website

You can install Oracle’s JDK distribution, but we do not recommend it if you do not have enterprise support.

2. Set JAVA_HOME environment variable.

Open a terminal and run:

printf 'export JAVA_HOME="%s"\n' '/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/zulu-8.jdk/Contents/Home' >> ~/.zshenv

3. Extract the LinceBI package.

4. If you are going to access LinceBI from another hostname different from localhost, update the fully-qualified-server-url property.

You can find this property in the pentaho-solutions/system/server.properties file.

5. Start LinceBI.

Run start-pentaho.sh in a terminal from the installation folder.

6. Access LinceBI from a web browser.

  • URL: http://localhost:8080
  • User: admin
  • Password: password

You must wait until the text “Pentaho BI Platform server is ready” is printed in the tomcat/logs/catalina.YYYY-MM-DD.out file.
