I downloaded the latest monero v12 client using the following command:

curl -O -J -L  https://downloads.getmonero.org/gui/linux64

I never knew how to go about verifying its hash. How do I go about verifying this downloaded file is the same hash as shown on the site using the command line? Do i untar it first or do i leave it as tar file and do the verification?

Do it against the downloaded file.

I used the command:

sha256sum <my_file_here>

It will then spit out a hash string. Copy this string and then do a find on that same webpage to see if it matches.

It was pretty easy. Took less than 30 seconds to figure out.
