How to install via a terminal window:

Pre-requirements: GTK and Java headless mode.

Means you need to set java.awt.headless=false to java.awt.headless=true.

"Headless mode is a system configuration in which the display device, keyboard, or mouse is lacking. Sounds unexpected, but actually you can perform different operations in this mode, even with graphic data."

cd Downloads

Press Enter,

Then make the file executable with the following command:

chmod +x BiglyBT_Installer.sh

Press Enter,
