I’m having trouble getting LeanFT to install on my CentOS Linux machine. We got it to work on Ubuntu with no problem though.

The instructions for installing CentOS are a little different than Ubuntu. Ubuntu uses apt to install other packages, and CentOS uses yum. There are a few other differences. I've got commands for both below.

Please note that the installation of Linux for all distributions must be the 64 bit version!!

Note that all instances of $ at the beginning of a line indicate a terminal command prompt, not something you type. the command follows the $ .

**Install Java** (


$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
$ java -version

$ su -c ''yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk''
$ java -version

**Install NodeJS** (


$ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
$ curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
$ sudo apt-get install nodejs
$ node -v


$ curl --silent --location | bash -
as root:

$ yum install -y nodejs
$ node -v

Ensure IDE is already installed:
Eclipse ( is the most common IDE for Linux. Be sure to install a compatible version of Eclipse for LeanFT. The **IDE for Java EE Developers** works well.


**Install LeanFT**
Download the LeanFT install files from

In a terminal window, go to location where you put the LeanFT tar file and run the following command:

tar xvfz HPE_UFT_Pro_LeanFT_14.00_Linux_64_bit_Installation_LeanFT_14.00_Linux64_Setup.tar.gz

Next, run the installer file with root permissions:

sudo ./LeanFTSetup

Now you should get a dialog to install UFT Pro (LeanFT).
