AntConc on TurnKey Linux Server

If you try to launch AntConc on a Debian-based 64-bit system, you get the following error message (tested with versions 3.2.4u and 3.4.1u):

./antconc3.2.4u: No such file or directory
or 
./AntConc: No such file or directory

The following steps were necessary for me to be able to start AntConc on a TurnKey Linux Server (Debian7, 64-bit) using ssh with X11-forwarding enabled (e.g. PuTTY plus Xming on Windows 8.1).

Important note: Please respect Laurence Anthony’s licensing terms and ask for permission before using AntConc in a server/group environment (see README section ‘LEGAL MATTER’ (p. 11) for details).

1) Activate i386 architecture on 64-bit systems:

apt-get install libc6-i386
dpkg --add-architecture i386

2) Install missing 32-bit libraries:

apt-get install libx11-6:i386 libxss1:i386 libxft2:i386

By default, if you try to open AntConc 3.4.1m (2014) on Mac OS X Mavericks, it is blocked by OSX Gatekeeper:

24-01-2014 00-32-47

  • To be able to start the app, you need to add it as an exception: Go to ‘Apple Icon’ ⇨ ‘System Preferences’ ⇨ ‘Security & Privacy’:

24-01-2014 00-37-03

  • Click on ‘Open Anyway’ (you need to have double-clicked AntConc before for this option to appear):

24-01-2014 00-38-22

  • and click on ‘open’ in the following dialogue:

AntConc 3.2.4m (2011) on OSX Mavericks (OS X 10.9)

There are two things that you have to bear in mind, when trying to start AntConc 3.2.4m on Mac OS X Mavericks:

(jump to Troubleshooting section if antconc pops up briefely and disappears again)

1) By default, if you try to open the app, it is blocked by OSX Gatekeeper:

  • To be able to start the app, you need to add it as an exception: Go to ‘Apple Icon’ ⇨ ‘System Preferences’ ⇨ ‘Security & Privacy’:

23-01-2014 22-58-40

  • Click on ‘Open Anyway’ (you need to have double-clicked antconc3.2.4m before for this option to appear):

23-01-2014 22-59-02

  • and click on ‘open’ in the following dialogue:


23-01-2014 23-48-38

2) Download, install & run the latest X11:

  • The first time you try to open the app, you’ll see the following message:

23-01-2014 23-51-26

  • You can click on ‘Continue’ or go directly to the download page:
  • Download and open the latest .dmg file
  • Install XQuartz on your system
  • Start X11 (‘Finder’ ⇨ ‘Go’ ⇨ ‘Utilities’ ⇨ ‘XQuartz’)
  • Double-click antconc3.2.4m


24-01-2014 00-07-09

Troubleshooting

If the antconc3.2.4m icon only pops up briefly in the doc area and disappears again, you forgot to start X11 before starting AntConc:

Open ‘XQuartz’: ‘Finder’ ⇨ ‘Go’ ⇨ ‘Utilities’ ⇨ ‘XQuartz’

24-01-2014 00-09-06

and double-click antconc afterwards. (Go back to Section 2 if ‘XQuartz’ is not present in the ‘Utilities’ folder.)

 

AntConc dependencies on Ubuntu/Xubuntu 64-bit

[Last update: 17/03/2014]

If you try to launch AntConc on an Ubuntu-based 64-bit system, you get the following error message (tested with versions 3.2.4u, 3.3.5u, 3.4.0u and 3.4.1u):

./antconc3.2.4u: No such file or directory
or 
./AntConc: No such file or directory

The minimal dependencies I had to install in order for AntConc to start successfully on Ubuntu 64-bit were the following libraries (tested on Ubuntu 13.10 and Xubuntu 12.04 LTS):

sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386 libxss1:i386 libxft2:i386
