Pix4Dengine Server installation on Linux

This article shows you how to download, install and configure Pix4Dengine Server on Linux.


To follow this article, you will need:

  • To be connected to the Internet
  • A valid Pix4Dengine Server license. Please contact us if you are looking for one

Step 1: Download

To download the Pix4Dengine Server installer for Linux (.deb package), go to https://cloud.pix4d.com/download/.


Documentation and support are not available for the preview version. We recommend testing it before using it for production work.

Step 2: Install

To install Pix4Dengine Server, you'll need to use the following command:

sudo apt install ./pix4dmapper

By default the newly installed Pix4Dengine Server executable is stored in a directory present in the PATH variable. If this is not the case, follow the instructions here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnvironmentVariables#Persistent_environment_variables

Step 3: Configure

Before processing a project, it is necessary to login and accept the EULA (after having read it). To do so, type the following command:

pix4dmapper -c --email EMAIL_ADDRESS --password PASSWORD --accept-eula yes

The -c argument is used to prevent the graphical user interface (GUI) from opening.


This and other configuration data are saved under /home/USER/.config/pix4d for Linux.

Going forward

Process a first project with Pix4Dengine Server by following the instructions here 115005866763.
