Launching Neo4j Desktop in Linux (Ubuntu & Debian) with an .appimage file
Neo4j installation on Linux using apt-get,
as per the process here,
distributes installation files across multiple system directories e.g.
A quicker way to install is using the
.appimage file directly from https://neo4j.com/download/
The download for linux distributions is in the form of a .appimage file. AppImage files can then run without installation or the need for root priviledges.
Example: If the file is downloaded to
then from terminal run the following commands at this location:
$ chmod a+x neo4j-desktop-1.0.3-x86_64.AppImage $ ./neo4j-desktop-1.0.3-x86_64.AppImage
This creates an executable at
/home/neo4j/Downloads/ in this example, which can just be double-clicked to launch the Neo4j Desktop application.
