# Launching EDITFEKO (Linux)

There are several options available to launch EDITFEKO on Linux.

Launch EDITFEKO using one of the following workflows:
• Open EDITFEKO using the Launcher utility.
• Open a command terminal. Use the absolute path to the location where the EDITFEKO executable resides, for example:
/home/user/2022.1/altair/feko/bin/editfeko
• Open a command terminal. Source the initfeko 3D view using the absolute path to it, for example:
. /home/user/2022.1/altair/feko/bin/initfeko
Sourcing initfeko ensures that the correct Feko environment is setup. Type editfeko and press Enter.
Note: Take note that sourcing a script requires a dot (".") followed by a space (" ") and then the path to initfeko in order for the changes to be applied to the current shell and not a sub-shell.
