Installing Time Doctor on Linux (Ubuntu 17.10)

This is a step-by-step guide on how to install and run the Time Doctor software for the first time on the latest Ubuntu 17.10.

NOTE: You must be logged in to an Xorg session, not Wayland, for the Time Doctor app to work properly.

1. To download, please scroll down to the bottom of the page at:

: The installer is only available for Time Doctor Pro.

2. Locate the downloaded file. Right-click and set the permission for the file to be executed as a program.

3. Be sure that the previous installation has been removed manually before installing the following packages. Run sudo apt-get remove timedoctorin the terminal to remove the old .deb package from your system.

4. Run the setup file.

Time Doctor is now installed.

There sometimes may be libraries missing from your Ubuntu installation. Try to run Time Doctor from the terminal to see which libraries are missing on your system. We have a useful article to help with this: Installing Libraries and Dependencies on Linux.

That is it! You may now run Time Doctor and start working!
