Debian is one of the top server Linux OSes, and has many popular derivatives including Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pop!_OS and others. What's the easiest way to install the Monero GUI on it?

Whonix has added Monero to its APT repository (you can see that here) so the process is now pretty straightforward:

Download and add the Whonix signing key:

wget https://www.whonix.org/patrick.asc
sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/whonix.gpg add ~/patrick.asc

Add Whonix's APT repository:

echo "deb https://deb.whonix.org bullseye main contrib non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/whonix.list

Note: This line previously said "buster" instead of "bullseye" - buster is the old release - see Whonix 15 Deprecation for details

Update your package lists:

sudo apt-get update

Install the Monero GUI:

sudo apt-get install monero-gui

If you're on almost any Linux OS, Monero can be installed via Flatpak.

  1. Follow the Flatpak Setup if you haven't already: Flatpak.org/setup
  2. Install the Monero GUI: Flathub.org/apps/details/org.getmonero.Monero
