Install Issue on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04)

Checking prerequisites and preparing Autopsy:

Checking for PhotoRec…found in /usr/bin
Checking for Java…found in /usr/lib/jvm/bellsoft-java8-full-amd64
Checking for Sleuth Kit Java bindings…found in /usr/share/java
Copying sleuthkit-4.9.0.jar into the Autopsy directory…cp: target ‘Recovery/autopsy-4.15.0/autopsy/modules/ext/sleuthkit-postgresql-4.9.0.jar’ is not a directory
ERROR: Copying /usr/share/java/sleuthkit-4.9.0.jar to /home/USERNAME/Data Recovery/autopsy-4.15.0/autopsy/modules/ext/sleuthkit-postgresql-4.9.0.jar failed.
Please check your permissions.

Any idea how to fix this?

It is because you have spaces in your pathname. You will need to edit the file. At line 60 put double quotes around the variable like this rm -f “$ext_jar_filepath”; at line 66 put double quotes around the variable like this cp $sleuthkit_jar_filepath “$ext_jar_filepath” This is fixed in the next release. This should fix your problem.

Not sure if this is the same issue, I have autopsy installed on linux mint 19.3 and 20. I get a permissions error unless I start autopsy from the autopsy/bin folder using sudo ./autopsy
