Setup Interactive brokers TWS with Linux Ubuntu 18.04 x64

Hi,

I was struggling to get trader workstation to work properly with ubuntu x64 with video and audio enables.  I really wanted to use linux as it is more secure operating system.

  1. Install tws https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=16040
  2.  Install Glib : from terminal..
    sudo apt-get install glib2.0 -y

    Or use synaptic package manager

  3.  Install libav-tools  ( I used synaptic manager for this)

Now TWS should work with full video capability which means Bloomberg TV runs on software. If there is still problem, install Java and Java runtime
