How to install Discord on Linux - LinuxConfig.org

Steve in Indy

The Discord binary yields a blank window in an amusing shade of gray on Fedora.

vishalv/discord-canary does NOT work anymore. discord have fully released the linux client and the canary version does not work. You have to install using the .tar.gz or convert the .deb to .rpm

The error says you are missing libc++
install libc++

William T. Svendsen

running antergos but it only come that there is no such file

NilValue

Whenever I attempt an install it gives me a bad time. Says

“dpkg: error processing package discord-canary (–install):

Lubos Rendek Mod -> NilValue

try to run

# apt-get install -f

after you receive the above message. Alternatively try to use gdebi command to install the package:

# gdebi /path/to/discord-canary.deb

Leaf -> Lubos Rendek

I havnt really done this much before, what exactly is the /path/to/ of this situation and where would I typically find it for future reference

Lubos Rendek Mod -> Leaf

try to start here: Filesystem Basics - LinuxConfig.org

Ummm…

username@catherine-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i /path/to/discord-canary.deb
dpkg: error processing /path/to/discord-canary.deb (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:

Lubos Rendek Mod -> Geoff

replace the /path/to/ with the the actual path to the downloaded discord-canary.deb package.

Hey! I’m on Ubuntu and I get dependency problems.

Does this mean (Sorry, i’m new!) that I first have to install the packages libappindicator1 and libc++1?

Thanks in advance!

I’m on Lubuntu and when I try download it, I just get
dpkg: error processing archive /path/to/discord-canary-0.0.8.deb (–install):

Bróccán Ware -> Fredrey

Hey so first off, discord is only currently made with 64 bit architechtures. so if you are running a 32 bit version of Ubuntu without 64 bit libraries the installation wont work. However since this is a simple pathing problem it looks like. This can be resolved.

First type in terminal (without parenthesis):

wget https://discordapp. com/api/download/canary?platform=linux

You should get an output similar to:

“2017-02-07 00:28:30 (1.22 MB/s) - ‘canary?platform=linux’ saved [38094340/38094]”

The ‘canary?platform=linux’ is the name of the file, so its the same for then all you need to do is type:

sudo dpkg -i canary?platform=linux

and the instillation should begin.

NOTE: If you get an error saying something along the lines of “Wrong architecture” then chances are you are running a 32bit verson of linux. Not a 64 bit and you can either reinstall linux with 64 bit or figure out a way to install 64 bit libraries if your cpu supports it which you can check by typing “lscpu”. If you encounter any problems let me know and give me more details about the output it is giving you as well as your specs for your processor and ubuntu version.

Thanks for this… Article updated to include wget’s -O option to save discord package with an appropriate file name.

I’m running Raspbian on a Pi 3. Out of luck?

The issue seems to be the ARM

package architecture (amd64) does not match system (armhf)

AlunBlue14 -> Blimmo D. Clown

Pretty much since the app isn’t developed for the ARM processor architecture (armhf). Sorry.
