Linux Platform

The HyperView Player plugin on Linux supports both 32-bit and 64-bit Firefox browsers. Registering the plugin will depend on whether you are using the 32-bit or 64-bit version:
  1. Set environment variable ALTAIR_HOME to point to the HyperWorks installation.
  2. Set environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to /usr/lib, /usr/lib64, or /usr/lib32 to enable Firefox to retrieve the 64-bit or 32-bit libraries on Linux based platforms.
  3. Append environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH with $ALTAIR_HOME/hw/bin/linux<bit_version> to enable Firefox to retrieve the library.
