I downloaded 3.2 for 64 bit linux today.
When I run ./setup I get an html page with the following information:
// start quote ******
The launchpad supports the following browsers:
o Internet Explorer (Microsoft Windows platforms only)
Use the following procedure to attempt to correct the error that is preventing the launchpad from displaying and to try to start the launchpad again:
1. If you do not have the Mozilla Web browser, download and install the Mozilla Web browser from http://www.mozilla.org.
On Linux and UNIX platforms, export the location of the supported browser. For example:
2. If the product CD is no longer accessible, insert the CD into a CD drive. Mount the drive if necessary on Linux and UNIX platforms.
3. Restart the launchpad by issuing the following command:
Linux and UNIX platforms: ./launchpad.sh
Windows platforms: launchpad.exe
// end of quote ****
Since Firefox is supported I should not have to do anything but I exported Firefox anyway per the instructions. Then tried to run ./launchpad.sh from the launchpad directory only to discover no such file exists.
Was the file left out of the 1.5GB download or are these instructions currently irrelevant? What should I try next?
Linux was a fresh install today. I did install database 10.1 first but it too is the 64 bit Linux version.
Thanks for any direction.

Re: 3.2 missing 64 bit Linux install?2013-01-24T23:57:26Z in response to chuck@edmondsHi, not sure if this is still a problem. If it is, a work-around to bypass the launchpad is from the same dir where setup is, run "./disk1/InstallerImage_linux/install"
Will get back to you regarding the launchpad browser issue.

Re: 3.2 missing 64 bit Linux install?2013-01-25T14:20:27Z in response to SystemAdminIt's still a problem but I just happened to stumble upon your work-around a few weeks ago and DS3.2 has been working fine. At first I felt a little uneasy thinking I may have missed critical set-up steps but it does not seem to be the case. I'm not sure how many others would stumble upon the work-around, though, and suspect they would just give up on DB2 on Linux. It definitely needs to be fixed. DB2 without DS is unusable for developers since CC is gone!
