Downloading and Installing Anypoint Studio (Linux)


  • Ensure that you have the Java SE JDK 8 installed and configured.

  • To support the Studio Theme in Linux, have GTK version 2 installed.

  • Download the Anypoint Studio installation file from the Download Site.


  1. Open the extracted Anypoint Studio.

  2. Click OK to accept the default workspace.

    • You must Use an absolute path when defining your workspace because Anypoint Studio does not expand the ~ tilde used in Unix and Linux systems.


If Anypoint Studio fails to load with a An Error Has Occurred message, you must configure it to point to your JDK installation as the default VM:

  1. Locate your AnypointStudio.ini file in /usr/lib/anypointstudio/anypointstudio.ini.

  2. Add the -vm option to point to your specific JDK installation path.

    • The -vm option and the installation path must be on separate lines.

    • The value must be the full absolute or relative path to the Java executable, not just to the Java home directory.

    • The -vm option must occur after the other Studio-specific options (such as -product, --launcher.*, etc), but before the -vmargs option.
