Pipeline 2—Download and Installation
The application can be run on most common operating systems but it must run in a Java runtime environment. Windows and Mac users do not have to worry about Java because it is included in the DAISY Pipeline installation. Linux users must, however, make sure that Java is present. The minimum required version is Java is 11 We recommend installing Java from Adopt Open JDK.
The desktop application requires JavaFX. If you are on Windows or Mac, a version of Java that includes JavaFX, namely Oracle’s Java SE implementation, is automatically installed for you. If you are on another platform and can not use Oracle’s Java, have a look at the following alternatives for acquiring JavaFX:
