For the moment, UiPath only works on windows machines.
Linux can be automated using a combination of OCR and image-based clicks & keyboard actions. All that through a VM or remote connection.

So it’s a bit more cumbersome, and there’s no recorder.

But what kind of activities was your customer looking to automate?

Customer wanted to trigger UiPath robot execution on same linux machine where their java application is hosted.

Do you know what was the robot supposed to do on that machine? Was it terminal-based actions or in a desktop environment (which one) ?

Robot suppose to process some excel files(Reading excel files and enter details in web interface), excel file is outcome of their java application.

@Satish_Pakki - It is not possible to install UiPath studio/robot in Linux machine.

One option may work, You can use virtual machine and install robot in that virtual machine.
