How can I use Stashpad on Linux?
We provide an AppImage which can be run from many different distributions of Linux. AppImage requires that libfuse2 is installed. On some distributions it is installed by default. If not, please install it with your distribution's package manager.
There is a tool for managing AppImage installations called AppImageLauncher. Its purpose is to integrate AppImages into your computer. It automatically sets up the .desktop file so that Stashpad appears in your list of applications, and establishes the deep linking scheme for Stashpad on your OS that is required to authenticate with Stashpad.
This set of instructions was tested on Ubuntu 22.04. AppImageLauncher is available for many distributions, please see the instructions for how to install it on your machine.
Download the AppImage from stashpad.com.
Install AppImageLauncher from their provided PPA using apt.
Make the downloaded Stashpad.AppImage file executable.
Run the Stashpad AppImage.
You will see a prompt from AppImageLauncher asking you to choose between Integrate and run or Run once. Choose the Integrate and run option.
If you have a distribution of Linux that does not support AppImage, we'd love to hear from you. AppImage should run on most distributions derived from Debian (including Ubuntu and Mint), Red Hat flavors like Fedora, and on Arch Linux. If you're having trouble getting started, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help.
