Installing your Talend Studio

Unzip the archive

  1. Copy the archive to a directory of your choice.

  2. Unzip it.

  3. Create a file (without extension) named license containing your license key (found in your email), and paste the file at the root of the extracted directory.

Editing the memory and JVM settings

To gain in performance at runtime and when launching the Studio, proceed as follows: you can edit the memory settings in the .ini.

  1. Edit the Talend-Studio-linux-gtk-x86_64.ini file.

  2. Edit the memory attributes. For example:

    -vmargs -Xms512m -Xmx1536m -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=512m


    For big projects, you may need to increase Xmx to 4096m.

    For more details, see

Launching your Talend Studio

  1. Double-click the executable to launch your Talend Studio.

    Execute the following file corresponding to your operating system:

    • Talend-Studio-linux-gtk-x86_64 if you are on 64-bit Linux;

    • Talend-Studio-linux-gtk-ppc if you are on an operating system that works on the PowerPC architecture;

    •, which is a script that runs the Linux command and adds a parameter to avoid some graphical issues.

    Note that to use the script file, you should add the execution rights to it using the following command:

    $ chmod +x

  2. In the dialog box that appears:

    • click My product license is on a remote host if you have already set your license and project in Talend Administration Center and want to retrieve this license, then enter the login credentials and the server URL, and click Fetch to fetch the license.

    • click My product license is on the local file system to browse and select your license.

  3. Click Next to launch your Talend Studio.

    If you installed your Talend product via the Talend Installer, see the Getting Started Guide for more information on how to launch the Studio and set up a connection to Talend Administration Center.


If your Talend Studio fails to connect to the remote server, a dialog box is displayed to allow you to:

  • Retry connecting to the remote server.

  • Modify the connection timeout time to allow more retries. The value 0 means no connection timeout.

If needed, click Cancel to close the dialog box and check your connection details.
