I have bought the pro 4 version of your program, but when i run it in Ubuntu 18.04 from hard drive or memory stick nothing happens.

I can see the program running in the System Monitor but nothing else is happening, it runs for a couple of minutes and then shuts down.

I have followed this:

Can you help me?

    Hi jensaagebentsen,

    Thanks for posting. To clarify, are you running the benchmark using the command `./geekbench4' in Terminal? If so, are you seeing any output afterwards?

    If you input ./geekbench4 --help you should see a help menu afterwards. To enter your license key, input ./geekbench4 --unlock <email> <license key> (substituting your email address for and your license key for )

    Instead of accessing a Tools menu to export your license (as stated in the knowledge base articles), because the Linux version is run using the command line, you will need to use the command --export-license <directory> entering the directory you would like to export the .preferences file to. Let me know if you need anything clarified!
