How to install iReport in Linux machine

In this post you will see how to install iReport in Linux machine.

1:- First check out which version of iReport you want to install, to see the iReport versions you can use bellow link.
Now download iReport-5.5.1.tar.gz from bellow link 

2:- After downloading iReport go to the directory where you have downloaded it. In my case it is in Downloads directory.
$ cd /Downloads/
And if you want to copy in other directory you can use mv (move) or cp (copy) command.
$ mv/Downloads/ iReport-5.5.1.tar.gz     /opt/ iReport-5.5.1.tar.gz

3:- Extract iReport-5.5.1 directory from zipped file using bellow command.
$ tar -zxvf iReport-5.5.1.tar.gz

  1. -z : Work on gzip compression automatically when reading archives.
  2. -x : Extract archives.
  3. -v : Produce verbose output i.e. display progress and extracted file list on screen.
  4. -f : Read the archive from the archive to the specified file. In this example, read backups.tar.gz archive.
  5. -t : List the files in the archive.
4:- Now to start iReport open a terminal and type the bellow command.

$ /Downloads/iReport-5.5.1/bin/ireport

Now if your iReport starts that means you have successfully installed iReport.
