Linux Install

First, grab the latest release from the Github releases page. The file you want is Unzip this file somewhere, and fix the permissions on the .sh files:

chmod +x *.sh

Java Install

You’ll need to install Java 17. If you wish to do so using your normal package manager, ensure that the java program is on your $PATH and points to the correct Java install.

Otherwise, you’ll need to install Java to a directory called jre within the main Triggevent install directory. (i.e. the jre directory needs to directly contain bin, lib, etc). You can symlink this to an existing install.

If you need to install Java, you can run in the Triggevent dir, or manually download Java 17. If you manually download, remember to rename the directory from jdk-x.y.z to jre.


Simply run, or if you wish to import a log.

Known Issues

Overlay scaling does not work as well as on Windows. They seem to always render at the un-scaled resolution, and then are interpolated up to the scaled size.

The .sh scripts are not currently handled by the updater, and the updater will re-download the unnecessary .exe files if they are deleted.

Even when overlays are in click-through mode (i.e. not editing), there is a 1x1 area near the top-left of the overlay where clicks will still be intercepted by the overlay.

A bundled is provided, but you can make a userdata directory and place another in there to override it if you are having issues with click-through working correctly.
