Unhappy Download Link for Curl

Hi Linux Users,

Total n00b question here - when I curl -O (or curl -o and make a .run filename), Ubuntu 20.04 server will not allow me to "sudo ./displaylink-driver...run". It says "command not found". Is this due to the format of the .run file at https://displaylink.org/downloads/ubuntu?

I tried the download the file on for Ubuntu to Windows and it comes down as a .zip. So I thought, let's curl the file on Ubuntu server and run unzip... no dice.

"End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive."

Any way to get the .run file to download in such a way that I can execute it?

Hi,
It seems you're downloading the webpage instead of a file. You can try the following:

Code:
curl -L -o displaylink.zip -d fileId=1576 -d accept_submit=Accept https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file
unzip displaylink.zip
chmod +x displaylink-driver-5.3.1.34.run
sudo ./displaylink-driver-5.3.1.34.run

sudo ./displaylink-driver-5.3.1.34.run

trying to do this for the Mac version. I can see the file ID is 1715 but I'm not able to download.
Any ideas?

Hi, on macOS the extension is different. Try this one:

Code:
curl -L -o displaylink.pkg -d fileId=1715 -d accept_submit=Accept https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file

Thanks, looks to be working. Now trying to understand how to get that to work via installomator which is script for Mac app deployment.

https://github.com/Installomator/Installomator

For example an installomator entry using curl is like this, but I can't figure it out for DisplayLink.

Code:
malwarebytes)
    name="Malwarebytes"
    type="pkg"
    downloadURL="https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3-mac"
    appNewVersion=$(curl -Ifs https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3-mac | grep "location" | sed -E 's/.*-Mac-([0-9\.]*)\.pkg/\1/g')
    expectedTeamID="GVZRY6KDKR"
    ;;
