Ubuntu Linux agent instructions

On Ubuntu (and Mint and other Debian based Linux distros), you should install the agent like this:
Do this while logged in as your user (not root), in a Terminal window:
sudo apt-get -y update sudo apt-get -y upgrade wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/triggercmdagents/triggercmdagent_1.0.1_amd64.deb sudo apt install ./triggercmdagent_1.0.1_amd64.deb
If you're in X-Windows, type:
If you're not in X-Windows, run one of these 2 commands instead (depending on your specific OS):
node /usr/share/triggercmdagent/resources/app/src/agent.js --console node /usr/lib/triggercmdagent/resources/app/src/agent.js --console (newer Ubuntu OS's)
Log into your triggercmd.com account, and copy the token from the Instructions link, and paste it into the Token prompt.
Then to install the background service:
If you're in X-Windows: Right-click T tray icon, click Background Service - Install Background Service
If you're not in X-Windows, CTRL-C out of the above "agent.js --console" command, and run:
sudo sh /usr/share/triggercmdagent/resources/app/src/installdaemon.sh sudo sh /usr/lib/triggercmdagent/resources/app/src/installdaemon.sh (newer Ubuntu OS's)
To check the status of the background service:
- Run: systemctl status triggercmdagent
- In your triggercmd.com account, click View Triggers. If you see your background triggers, the background service is working.
If at first the background service doesn't install, try this:
- CTRL-C, or select Quit from the T tray icon.
- Re-run triggercmdagent
- Try installing it again using the tray icon.

EDIT 6/4/18: For Ubuntu 14 you'll have to install using this method instead:
sudo su - wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/triggercmdagents/triggercmdagent_1.0.1_amd64.deb dpkg -i ./triggercmdagent_1.0.1_amd64.deb apt-get install -f exit triggercmdagent
