Installing Titanium on Ubuntu Linux

As far as installing Titanium, the only instructions I found were on the "Getting Started with Titanium Mobile" page, where it says:

"After installing Titanium Developer, you should start the Titanium Developer product and see the following welcome screen"

However, I don't get any kind of welcome screen.

The first time I ran "Titanium Developer", which was in the "Titanium Developer-1.2.1" directory, it gave me an install interface, and then installed some files in my home directory under ".titanium".

After that, nothing. There are no shortcut links on my desktop or in my Applications menu to start anything. If I run "Titanium Developer" again, it does nothing.

So far as I can tell, I've downloaded the Google Android SDK, but I can't seem to get it to link up in any way with Titanium.

Are there clear instructions for installing Titanium on Ubuntu Linux (or at least Linux in general?)

Thank you for any advice.

  • I've got this problem too
    Titanium is installed to my home folder so it shouldn't be a permission thing
    i'm using Ubuntu 10.10
    I've followed the instructions in that video posted by dd.incredible and I have a Titanium Developer folder with the app inside, but nothing happens after when I try and run it (after it downloads the packages)

    • My solution was found in this thread: http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/14471/symbol-lookup-error-usrliblibgdk-x11-20so0-undefined-symbol-gmallocn-solved

    • Worked for me too (Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64)

    • Just to note, I've installed Titanium on different versions of Ubuntu so many times, and I've never needed to delete any libraries.

  • I'm having this problem as well. I have found more information though; when I run the program through the terminal I get the following error:

    ./Titanium Developer: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_malloc_n

    This happens after titanium developer goes and downloads the SDKs. After it does that, it tries to run and spits that error out.

    Can anyone shed any further light on this issue?

    • Sadly, this video isn't helpful – the guy doesn't get the same error as what we are getting.

  • Do you see a ~/Titanium\ Developer folder Dave?

    If you do - inside that - you'll find the Ti Dev app - which is the the main app.

      Why bring up such an old topic? The solution mentioned here, to remove libraries, is not necessary now.

  • I tried everything. I'm running 64bits ubuntu, 32 bits java, don't know about javac-version (it doesn't say the bits).
    I downloaded the 64 bits titanium, no result,
    the 32 bits, also no result,
    (even the windows one doesn't work on windows).
    I see a lot of how to install titanium's on the web, tried a log of them, all without success.
    What we need, is an installation, that would check things to, with some good advice.
    So when it needs a certain jdk, it would say: worng jdk installed, see: http:// forumpage/how_to_install_jdk

    I'm following this titanium thing for a couple of months now, but each time, I don't succeed. (And no way that it has anything to do with my computer, OS or whatever.) The installation instructions are far from mature. The forum is filled with problems.

    If my car was like this, I had to let it go. However, I keep having faith in this product. Please, don't let me loose that.
