Arch Linux

Other Linux

The following generic binary Linux packages are available:

Development Snapshots

Linux - AppImage

Please try the automatically built snapshots first if you are running a supported distribution (see below), the following AppImage builds are still experimental.

Linux - Snap

Snap packages are available, as those are built against an older Ubuntu (16.04) those are using some older components which can cause known display issues, so if possible use one of the specific distribution packages below.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openscad/releases
Linux - Distribution Packages

The packages are automatically built based on the master branch on github.

Note: The packages are called "openscad-nightly" so it's possible to install the development snapshot packages in parallel to the release version from the official repositories.

Debian / Ubuntu packages built on OpenSUSE build service

To install the packages, the release key must be added with apt-key to the key-ring to allow apt-get / aptitude to validate the packages.

Key ID: 75F3214F30EB8E08 (valid till 2021-04-18)
Key UID: home:t-paul OBS Project

NOTE: If you get errors about an expired key valid till 2019-02-07, please re-import via the following command.

$ wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -

After the key is added, the repository URL needs to be configured. This can be done by creating a new file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openscad.list with the URL specific to the distribution.

The repository links below are shown as https, please check for your installation if https is supported. In Debian/Ubuntu this is usually handled by the apt-transport-https package. OBS also supports HTTP links, but it's recommended to use https whenever possible.
