Prerequisite for the KDAriane installation


KDAriane has been tested on Linux Ubuntu, but it should work on every system where the following is available :
  • a C++ compiler for the data mining binaries of KDAriane
  • the boost library for C++
    sudo apt-get install libboost-dev
  • Java, which runs Ariane and some Weka components should be installed and well configured. In particular, both .bashrc and .profile (Ariane launches its process without graphical interface, then the .profile is read instead of the .bashrc) should contain the following definitions:
    export JAVA_HOME
    export PATH

See for installing Java with apt-get.


  • The C++ sources are handled by Netbeans 7.2 RC. Download a version containing the tools for C++.
  • KDAriane is sometimes using Firefox for rendering XSL. The XSL stylesheet has then an absolute path and Firefox should be configured to allow the feature:
    1) type about:config in the address bar
    2) change security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy to false
