Kiwix - Offline Wikipedia

As you answered to one of the previous question threads related to Offline Wikipedia, i tried it out. The run_hindi_wiki was in shell script. I then converted it into Executable. On running it chromium browser came up with "http://localhost:9000/" in its address bar and the page displayed no document was found at this address. Kindly provide possible solutions.

Are you using FOSSEE Laptop? Because the kiwix_servebinary will only work on ARM-based machines. 

Are you running the files from external sdcard? If so, it will not work. Please copy the content to home directory. 
Sorry, I couldn't duplicate this error at my end, how did you executed the file? Do you have anything else running on localhost?

Yes Sir, i have copied the extracted folder to the Fossee Laptop. And then i executed the run_hindi_wiki by double clicking it and selecting Run from the option.

You have to click on 'Execute' option in the dialog box (Not 'Execute in Terminal'). Hope it solves.

Got it running. The mistake i did was i had extracted the tar in the /home/student directory instead of /home . Now its working i.e. from the home directory. Thanks a lot!

But it should work from /home/student directory as well.
