Installing via the DEB file

I have downloaded the "AstroImageJ_v5.3.3.00-linux-x86_64Bit.deb" file and installed it on my Ubuntu using

> sudo dpkg -i AstroImageJ_v5.3.3.00-linux-x86_64Bit.deb

The installation went fine with the output like
user@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i AstroImageJ_v5.3.3.00-linux-x86_64Bit.deb
[sudo] password for user:

But astroimagej wont start when invoked as "astroimagej" or "aij".

The same with Ubuntu 22.04 and Debian 12.

However, installing it with tar.gz and following the on-line instructions works fine.

Re: Installing via the DEB file

Hi Riccardo,

There is indeed a bug in the DEB installation package tool that we use. We are waiting on a fix from the project. In the meantime, please do use the tar.gz workaround.

For now, I have removed the DEB package from the installation website.

We'll post back here when we have a new package.

Thank you for reporting this issue!
