Getting a back-testing user interface on Ubuntu (18.04)

Hi quants,

I'm a bit confused about getting the user interface on Ubuntu. I have followed the Linux instructions on 

https://github.com/QuantConnect/Lean

which seemed to have worked like a charm (with the exception of switching "xbuild" which is deprecated to "msbuild".)

However, when I run the launcher with:

mono ./QuantConnect.Lean.Launcher.exe

I get the long output ending with:

20190404 14:08:00.246 Trace:: BacktestingResultHandler.Run(): Ending Thread...
20190404 14:08:00.274 Trace:: DefaultAlphaHandler.Run(): Ending Thread...
20190404 14:08:00.343 Trace:: Waiting for threads to exit...

20190404 14:08:00.343 Trace:: Engine.Run(): Disposing of setup handler...
20190404 14:08:00.344 Trace:: Engine.Main(): Analysis Completed and Results Posted.
Engine.Main(): Analysis Complete. Press any key to continue.
 

It seems like the launcher does indeed run the back-test on some default algorithm, and give the results, but how do I get the actual interface (similar to the one website)? 

Sorry if I'm missing something basic and obvious, but I'm new to this so I would appreciate any help!

Hi Div,

Erik is correct, there is no IDE like the one on the web, but we do enable features that send your algorithm to the web for backtesting and also desktop charting, although the latter feature is deprecated and we are hoping to deploy a new version soon.
 

There is a config.json file in the Launcher directory of your local LEAN repository which determines the algorithm being run by the launcher, and also provides LEAN with details such as your QC account credentials, data environment, brokerage credentials, and any other information that LEAN needs to run backtests. We have helpful tutorials here that will assist you in setting up LEAN and leveraging its capabilities.
