How to install NICE DCV on Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04 and 22.04

Our easy step-by-step script guides you through installation of NICE DCV on Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04 and 22.04 on a GPU equipped visualization server. The script will first update the OS, install the nVidia driver and then install and configure NICE DCV. Including update of the OS it takes around 15 minutes to get NICE DCV up and running.

Please note: The NICE DCV Server is supported in addition on Redhat/CentOS, SLES and Windows in case preferred.

Here is a screenshot of part of the script:

# Install DCV
gpg --import NICE-GPG-KEY

dcv_server=`curl --silent --output - | \
grep href | egrep "$dcv_version" | grep "ubun" | grep Server | \
sed -e 's/.*http/http/' -e 's/tgz.*/tgz/' | head -1`
echo Installing DCV from $dcv_server
wget $dcv_server

tar zxvf nice-dcv-*ubun*.tgz
cd nice-dcv-*64
# install all packages
sudo apt install -y ./nice-*amd64.ubuntu*.deb
