"Omnis Studio is a cross-platform (Windows, Mac and Linux) Rapid Application Development tool. It allows you to quickly build applications using a combination of graphical elements as well as a code editor. It integrates the graphical interface, database and other elements of your application to make things easy for you. We'll look at how to get Omnis Studio installed on an Ubuntu computer and then we'll get familiar with the tools that it provides us with.


"01 As we are using an Ubuntu-based computer we can not use the RPM binaries provided by Tiger Logic. Instead, we will use the '.tgz' version of the application installer. So go ahead and download the latest release of Omnis Studio from the project's download section here.

"02 As many of the steps during the installation require administrator privileges, you could either use sudo for the commands or switch to the root user. To switch to the root user, use the command '# sudo bash' in a terminal window. You will be requested to enter your user's password. Then you should be the root user."
