Installation on LinuxΒΆ

These steps assume you are comfortable running scripts in a Linux terminal and are logged into a graphical desktop session as a user other than root.

  1. Download the installer

  2. Open a terminal, navigate to the folder where you saved the installer and give executable permissions to the installer:

    $ chmod +x ./daedalus-2.1.0-mainnet-14079.bin

  3. Run the installer (for example):

    $ ./daedalus-2.1.0-mainnet-14079.bin

Note: It may take a few seconds for the installer to start executing.

  1. After doing that try running the installer again.

  2. Start Daedalus using any of these methods:

    • Using the desktop Application menu

    • Run ~/.local/bin/daedalus-mainnet

    • Run daedalus-mainnet (works on Linux distributions that put ~/.local/bin in $PATH)

On some Linux distributions this may initially fail and request you to run some commands as root to enable kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone. If sudo is available, running these two commands should work:

$ sudo sysctl -w kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1  
$ sudo sh -c "echo kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1 > /etc/sysctl.d/nix-user-chroot.conf"

Note: There is no need to uninstall Daedalus from Linux prior to any version upgrade however if you would like to completely remove Daedalus from Linux please see the following article in our support portal: How to uninstall Daedalus from Linux
