GNU/Linux logo

GNU/Linux

On most GNU/Linux distributions Retroshare is available along with standard packages, so you should check before on your preferred package manager if current RetroShare version is installable from there. If RetroShare is not available on your package manager or the available version is outdated you can find detailed instructions for each distribution we have tested down in this page.

We maintain an experimental RetroShare for Android package on F-Droid which only provides chat.

Android experts may also be interested in trying development snapshots from the RetroShare Android builds by G10h4ck channel to give us feedback and hopefully submit patches. We strongly discourage the usage of development snapshots on a non development device.

AppImage logo

AppImage

If none of the distribution specific options fits your setup you should try AppImage. Take care of selecting the one which match your CPU architecture (use x86_64 if you are unsure). We expect those AppImages to work on most GNU/Linux distributions.
