Setting up Linux for 61B is super easy, all you have to do is use your package manager (apt, yum, etc) to install the Java JDK, git and curl.
To install and configure the Java JDK, git and curl on Ubuntu:
sudo apt install openjdk-17-jdk git curl
If you’re able to successfully install Java, you can skip the step later on in the lab to download it through IntelliJ (Installing Java).
You can also install IntelliJ using:
sudo snap install intellij-idea-community --classic
If IntelliJ installs successfully without errors using this command, skip over the installing IntelliJ section in the main lab page.
