How to install Ikomia on Linux

Today, we are going to install Ikomia on Linux Ubuntu 18.04 but it’s the same process whatever your distro.

First of all, let us briefly recall what is Ikomia. Ikomia is a cross-platform software dedicated to use, share and reproduce state of the art computer vision algorithms (see here for more details).

At first, you need to download Ikomia here.

Note: The size of the installer is important because we bundle our own Python framework, all OpenCV libs and all CUDA/CUDNN dependencies.

Then if you choose to sign-up/register, you can benefit from some advantages:

  • Access to advanced features like plugin integration and algorithms sharing
  • Access to Ikomia Helpdesk to notify bugs or defects for fast corrections and improvements from Ikomia team
  • Access to the Q&A system to get support from the community

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/

The next step is to launch IkomiaSetup and follow the instructions. Then 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 4.2.0
  • VTK 8.1
  • Cuda 10.1
  • Cudnn 7.6.5
  • Python 3.7
  • G’mic 2.8.0

Tested on these Linux distributions:

  • Manjaro
  • Linux Mint 17.3|19.2
  • Debian 8.11|10
  • Ubuntu 16.04|18.04|19.10
  • Elementary OS 5.0
  • Solus 4.0
  • Fedora 30
  • Deepin 15.11
