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 3 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 you choose to use an existing workspace, this must have been created using Anypoint Studio 7.0 or later.
      Studio 7.x supports only Mule 4.x projects, because the structure of the project, export format, XML, and scripting language are different than the ones used by Mule 3.x.


If Anypoint Studio fails to load with a Incorrect Java Version 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.
