1) Install Java. In a Terminal:
~$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
2) Download OpenCyc
3) Unpack the downloaded file and move the folder to whatever directory
4) Within the OpenCyc folder, locate the â€œscriptsâ€ folder and open it. Open each script in Gedit and change the first line from*:
SHELL = /bin/bash
*Taken from DashAsBinSh.
5) In a Terminal, cd to the OpenCyc/scripts directory, then do:
(for 64 bit)
~$ echo SuSE-9.2-x86_64 > platform-override.txt
(for 32 bit)
~$ echo SuSE-9.2-x86_32 > platform-override.txt
Note that the first time OpenCyc is run you may be in for a long wait – it took about 10~15 minutes on my laptop.
