Installing DataGrip

There are multiple ways through which we can install DataGrip on our Linux PC. We will discuss all these steps one by one.

  • From the official tarball file from DataGrip website
  • And installing with the Snap package Manager

So let’s get started!

Method 1: Downloading tarball file from DataGrip website

After downloading the above file, we have to decompress it. Open your Terminal, and run the following command:

cd Downloads/   #change into downloaded file directory
sudo tar -zxvf datagrip-2023.3.4.tar.gz -C /opt/   #decompressing

Here, we are decompressing the tarball file into a recommended /opt/ directory. Also, make sure to rename the above-mentioned script, as any future version of the application can have a different name.

After this step, skip to the Setting up DataGrip section at the bottom.

Method 2: Installing Datagrip using Snap

Again, if you don’t have installed snap on your Linux PC, follow this guide and install using the commands according to your OS. Note that if you are using Ubuntu, snaps are preinstalled on your system. For Debian, follow the below command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
sudo snap install core

Setting Up DataGrip

Now, we have to launch the application as mentioned below:

  • From the grid/Menu, if installed via Snap


  • Or, if you have installed the application via the tarball method, then run the script present in the extracted directory.

Change into /bin directory of decompressed directory. And execute script to run DataGrip.

cd /opt/DataGrip-2023.3.4/bin/ #change into decompressed /bin directory

In this module, we discussed DataGrip which is a cross-platform multiple engine database management IDE, and how to install it on our Linux system. We installed DataGrip on our Linux in two different ways, one way by using tarball file, secondly with snap package manager. It’s great that Jetbrains provides Linux support for all of its applications, and thus makes it easier for people to switch from any other Operating System to the FOSS one. New users won’t have to hunt for a new IDE and learn everything all over again, they can just use the familiar development platform and begin right where they have left off.
