How to Install Tizen SDK on Ubuntu


Tizen SDK is compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac OS. The installation on Ubuntu requires installation of additional software before running Tizen SDK Install Manager. This tutorial describes the installation process on Ubuntu 12.10.


Download Tizen SDK

Download an appropriate stable version of Tizen SDK Install Manager for your Ubuntu.
wget http://download.tizen.org/sdk/InstallManager/tizen-sdk--ubuntu.bin

Install Java Runtime Environment (JRE)

  • Download JRE for Linux as a tar archive.

  • Extract the archive.
  • tar -xvf jre-7u17-linux-i586.tar.gz
  • Create Java directory and move JRE into it
  • sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/jvm/jre1.7.0
    sudo mv jre1.7.0_17/* /usr/lib/jvm/jre1.7.0/
  • Install/Update Java
  • sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/lib/jvm/jre1.7.0/bin/java 0
  • Create directory for the plugin
  • mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
  • Create a symbolic link to Java
  • ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/jre1.7.0/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Install Dependencies

Before launching Tizen SDK Install Manager install the following packages: expect, gtk2-engines-pixbuf, libgnome2-0, qemu-user-static and libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
sudo apt-get install expect
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
sudo apt-get install libgnome2-0
sudo apt-get install qemu-user-static 
sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0

Install Tizen SDK

Add executable permissions to Install Manager and run it:
chmod +x tizen-sdk--ubuntu.bin


  • SDK runs on Eclipse, which requires JRE, JRE 6 or newer package is required.
  • Solution: Install JRE before running Tizen SDK installer.

  • If you want to install TIZEN-SDK, you must install "expect" "gtk2-engines-pixbuf" "libgnome2-0" "qemu-user-static" "libwebkitgtk-1.0-0" package(s).
  • Solution: install the required packages.
