    Hello. I experience the same problem. If you can send me a copy of the script, thanks a lot for that too.

    I hit the same thing today. Wrote TDA and was told they "don't support" Linux despite the installer link and instructions still being all over the place on their website.

    The installer tries to tail an archive with the goods out of the script file itself, but the offset it uses isn't an archive. There are pieces of a .tar.gz in there, but it's seemingly corrupt. The most recent version on web.archive from 2015:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20150806...m_installer.sh

    ... manages to run and install, but now "Installing updates..." spins for ~10 minutes at a time and complains about internet connectivity.

    Next, took my updated ToS install from Mac and copied the thinkorswim/thinkorswim bootstrapper script from the 2015 linux version into it. Same thing, runs but no internet connectivity. Maybe JRE needs to be given network access somehow? Beats me.

    Gave up and installed the Windows version with Wine. It seems to run as well as I'd have expected the "native" version to.
