How To Install Julia Programming Language on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Julia Programming Language on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Julia Programming Language on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Julia is a programming language designed to be high-performance in computation and analysis. Julia is widely used in data sciences and application-building processes as a programming language. Not only that, but Julia can work with other programming languages as well, such as Python, C, C++, Rust, R, and SQL.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the JuliaLang on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Julia Programming Language on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install wget apt-transport-https gnupg2 software-properties-common

Step 2. Installing Julia Programming Language on Ubuntu 22.04.

By default, JuliaLang is not available on Ubuntu 22.04 base repository. Now run the following command below to download the JuliaLang source code to your Ubuntu system:

wget https://julialang-s3.julialang.org/bin/linux/x64/1.8/julia-1.8.2-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Next, extract the Julia Tar file using tar command:

tar zxvf julia-1.8.2-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Step 3. Adding Julia to System Path.

For your Ubuntu system to find Julia’s executable, the PATH environment variable file ~/.bashrc should contain the full path to Julia’s bin directory (julia-1.8.2/bin):

nano ~/.bashrc

Add the bin directory at the end of the file. Save and exit:

export PATH="$PATH:/home/imaginelinux/julia-1.8.2/bin"

Update the ~/.bashrc file for the Ubuntu system to be able to trace Julia’s executables:

source ~/.bashrc

Verify JuliaLang version:

julia --version

Step 4. Accessing Julia on Ubuntu 22.04.

Once successfully installed on your Ubuntu system, simply type julia on the command prompt:
