This guide covers how to get a sample .NET Core 3.0 application building and running on Linux, specifically Ubuntu 16.04.
These steps should be transferrable to other Ubuntu versions and/or Linux distributions but it has not been tested. A list of supported distributions and versions can be found here.
sudo apt-get -f install libgdiplus
Next, retrieve the latest .NET Core 3.0 release for your system and place it under
~/dotnet-sdk. Once there, perform the following steps:
cd ~/dotnet-sdk sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/dotnet sudo tar -zxf dotnet-sdk-3.0.100-preview5-011568-linux-x64.tar.gz -C /usr/share/dotnet sudo ln -s /usr/share/dotnet/dotnet /usr/bin/dotnet
Confirm the above worked by checking the installed .NET version,
which should output something similar to:
Creating the Test Application
Now to create a simple test application that will use
System.Drawing.Common to create a bitmap image and save it to disk.
dotnet new console -o test-app cd test-app dotnet add package System.Drawing.Common
Then replace the contents of
Finally, build and run it:
dotnet build cd bin/Debug/netcoreapp3.0/ ./test-app
Assuming it was successful there should now be a
test.bmp next to your test application.
