Linux

Which file do I download?

When you download Exodus for Linux you have the option of either installing .deb or .zip installation files.

If you are using a Debian-based Linux distributions can download the .deb file for a better user experience, while non-Debian systems need to proceed with the .zip file. To check if your Linux distribution is Debian-based, you can check Wikipedia's list of Debian-based distributions.

Once you know your current distribution of Linux, proceed with the appropriate installation instructions below.

Linux is a third-party platform that is not affiliated with Exodus. As such, Exodus cannot guarantee the performance of its products/services or that the steps shown and the information provided will always be accurate.


Debian-based distributions

Follow the steps below to download Exodus on a device with a Debian-based Linux distribution. The installation process might look different depending on your Linux distribution. The screenshots for this guide were taken on Ubuntu 22.04.

Exodus will only run on 64-bit systems. Ensure your operating system is compatible: What operating systems does Exodus support?

  1. First, download the Linux .deb file from our website: Download Exodus.

  2. Next, double-click the downloaded .deb file to install Exodus.

    If Exodus does not install when you double-click the .deb file, you will need to check that Software Install is set as default for .deb files. To do that, a) Right-click the .deb file, then b) click Properties.

  3. a) Click the Open with, b) select Software install and lastly, c) click Set as default, to confirm.

  4. Double-click the .deb file you downloaded to install Exodus, and then click Install.

  5. After the installation, Exodus will appear in the app drawer of your desktop environment, and you can launch it from there.

If this doesn't work for your distribution, please download the .zip file. For more information on installing Exodus with the .zip file, jump to: Non-Debian distributions.


Non-Debian distributions

If your Linux distribution is non-Debian, you can download the .zip file and follow the instructions below.

After you've downloaded the .zip file, you'll need to unzip it:

After unzipping the file, you can place it wherever you like. We recommend just dropping it in your home directory, for example; /home/satoshi/Exodus-linux-x64.

Inside the now unzipped folder, you should see a file called exodus.desktop, double-clicking this will launch Exodus directly.

If double-clicking the exodus.desktop file doesn't launch the app directly, you can double-click the Exodus icon instead.


Registering the Exodus Desktop file with your OS

You can also register the exodus.desktop file with your operating system so that you can launch Exodus from exodus:// protocol links or from your OS application quick-launcher/application search.

First, move the unzipped Exodus folder to a long-term location where it can live (for example, your home folder). Then, in a terminal inside that folder, execute the script ./install-desktop-file.sh.


For example, if you moved your unzipped folder to /home/satoshi/Exodus-linux-x64, you would open a terminal and run these commands:

cd /home/satoshi/Exodus-linux-x64 ./install-desktop-file.sh

This script will register the exodus.desktop file with your OS, letting your OS know that the Exodus executable is located at /home/satoshi/Exodus-linux-x64/Exodus, and allow exodus:// links clicked in your browser to open the Exodus app.

The exodus.desktop file contains a command that launches Exodus from the current directory. Depending on your security settings, you may receive a pop-up asking you whether you trust this file to be launched:

You can verify what the file does by opening it in the text editor and reviewing the contents. All the file does is launch Exodus from the current folder. If you decide not to trust the file or your Linux distribution does not support .desktop files, you can always run Exodus directly from the terminal: ./Exodus

If Exodus fails to run from the first try, open your shell app (Terminal) and set the correct permissions for the chrome-sandbox file. These are required for Exodus to properly run on certain Linux distributions:

chown root chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox


The latter command requires that you have full administrative access to your OS, so you may be prompted to input your password during the procedure.

Never run Exodus as root, via sudo, or add any command line arguments unless explicitly instructed by Exodus Support. If you have any questions about using Exodus on Linux, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Some newer Linux releases may require libgconf-2-4 to be installed which can be done by either:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y libgconf-2-4


on Debian/Ubuntu-based distributions, or

sudo yum update && sudo yum install libgconf2-4


for Fedora/RedHat-based ones.
