How to install Ikomia STUDIO on Linux

Here are the steps to install Ikomia STUDIO on Linux Ubuntu 22.04 but the process remains the same regardless of your distribution.

Ikomia is a cross-platform software dedicated to using, sharing, and reproducing state-of-the-art Computer Vision algorithms.

First, you need to download Ikomia STUDIO.

Note: The installer's file size is significant because we bundle our own Python framework, all OpenCV libraries, and NVIDIA CUDNN dependencies.

So now, you need to make the installer executable by right-clicking on it → permission → check “Allow execution” or by command line with

sudo chmod +x /path/to/IkomiaSetup

Then the next step is to launch IkomiaSetup and follow the instructions. Thus it creates two folders in your home directory:

  1. IkomiaInstall: it contains the EULA license and the uninstaller (maintenanceTool)
  2. Ikomia: it contains all the stuff needed for the Ikomia platform

Once it’s installed, search Ikomia and launch it.

In this version, we use the following tools:

  • OpenSSL 1.1
  • OpenCV 4.7.0 (with CUDA enabled)
  • VTK 8.1
  • Cudnn 8
  • Python 3.8
  • G’mic 2.8.0

Note: To leverage GPU computing with deep learning frameworks like PyTorch or TensorFlow, you must install NVIDIA CUDA toolkit 11.x.

Tested on these Linux distributions:

  • Manjaro
  • Linux Mint 19|20
  • Debian 10
  • Ubuntu 18.04|20.04|22.04
  • Elementary OS 5.0
  • Solus 4.0
  • Fedora 32
  • Deepin 15.11
  • Centos 7
  • Archlinux
