Unattended Stardog installation on Linux

I'd like to know if there are any unattended installation for Linux.

I've follow the steps for Linux installation (404 | Stardog Documentation Latest) trying with the command "-y" which is fine when the installation ask about Yes or No. The problem that I've run into is when it asks with multiple options like below:

Please select the geographic area in which you live. Subsequent configuration
questions will narrow this down by presenting a list of cities, representing
the time zones in which they are located.

  1. Africa 4. Australia 7. Atlantic 10. Pacific 13. Etc
  2. America 5. Arctic 8. Europe 11. SystemV
  3. Antarctica 6. Asia 9. Indian 12. US

Any ideas to make the installation totally unattended?

Thanks for your help.

This dialog isn't coming from Stardog, it appears to come from a dependent package called tzdata. You have a few options:

  1. You could ensure that tzdata is already installed and configured
  2. You could set DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive in your environment to suppress interactive dialogs
  3. You can set a proper timezone value in /etc/timezone so tzdata doesn't ask you for one
