Problem with installation of JuliaPro on Linux


I would like to test Pumas but I am having difficulry trying to install JuliaPro 1.2.0-1 on my laptop running Linux Mint 19.1 (ie, a flavor of Ubuntu 18.04). Based upon the quick guide, I have tried the following:

  • Using root account:
    • Created: sudo /usr/lib/julia
    • Set permissions: sudo chmod a+wrx /usr/lib/julia
  • Using my default user:
    • Successfully installed juliapro as indicated in the quick start guide: ./ /usr/lib/julia

Atom seems to open after issuing: /usr/lib/julia/JuliaPro-1.2.0-1/Launch_JuliaPro but the interface I see is completely different from the ones illustrated in the quick guide and it does not seem to contain any julia-specific menu items.

Moreover, error messages are reported in the shell:
$ ./Launch_JuliaPro
bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device
bash: no job control in this shell
Gtk-Message: 08:26:39.248: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
