Introduction

RazorSQL is a GUI tool for working with Postgresql.

Install RazorSQL

First, create the razorsql directory.

mkdir ~/Downloads/razorsql

Download RazorSQL into the ~/Downloads/navicat directory.

  1. Open a web browser to http://www.razorsql.com/download_linux.html.

After the download completes, open a command prompt and enter the following commands. I have assumed that you downloaded the .zip file to the Downloads/razorsql directory.

cd ~/Downloads/razorsql
unzip razorsql5_6_4_linux_x64.zip
mv razorsql ~/bin/
cd ~/bin/razorsql
chmod 755 razorsql.sh
./razorsql.sh
