How to install the Atomic crypto wallet on Linux

Atomic Wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet that can handle Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin, XLM, and hundreds of others. In this guide, we’ll show you how to get Atomic Wallet working on Linux.

Ubuntu installation instructions

The Atomic Wallet is compatible with Ubuntu Linux, and you’ll be able to install it quite easily. On Ubuntu, Atomic Wallet can be installed in two ways. The first way is via an AppImage. The second way is with a DEB package. In this guide, we will focus on the DEB package.

Note: if you have issues installing Atomic Wallet via the DEB package we cover in this tutorial, follow the Arch Linux installation instructions instead, and it should work.

To start the installation, you will need to download the DEB package. To download the DEB package, head over to the official Atomic Wallet website. Once there, find the “Download” button, and click on it with the mouse.

After clicking on the “Download” button, you will see “Download Atomic Wallet,” followed by various operating system logos, including Ubuntu. Ignore the Ubuntu logo and click on the Debian one to start the DEB package download.

Once the DEB package is done downloading to your computer, open up a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or Ctrl + Shift + T on the keyboard. Then, use the CD command to move into the “Downloads” directory.

cd ~/Downloads

Inside of the “Downloads” directory, you can install Atomic Wallet on your computer using the following Apt command.

sudo apt install ./atomicwallet.deb

Debian installation instructions

Atomic Wallet directly supports Debian with an excellent DEB package, so installation is easy. To start the download process, head over to the official Atomic Wallet page and click on “Download.”

After selecting the “Download” button, you will see “Download Atomic Wallet,” followed by various operating system logos. Click on the Debian logo to download the Atomic Wallet DEB package to your computer.

When the downloading process is complete, open up a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or Ctrl + Shift + T on the keyboard. Then, use the CD command to move the terminal window into the “Downloads” directory.

cd ~/Downloads

Inside of the “Downloads” folder, you can begin the installation. Using the dpkg command, install the latest release of Atomic Wallet for your Debian PC.

sudo dpkg -i atomicwallet.deb

Once the installation is complete, you may notice errors on the screen. If this happens, the DEB package was not able to correct its dependencies. Do not worry! That’s an easy fix! Follow this guide on the subject to learn how!

Arch Linux installation instructions

Arch Linux does not have direct support from the developers with an XZ package. However, it is possible to get the app working via an AppImage file. To start the installation, head over to Atomic Wallet’s website, and click on the “Download” button.

After clicking on the “Download” button, you will see various operating system logos, as well as “Download Atomic Wallet.” Click on the Ubuntu logo to grab the Atomic Wallet AppImage file.

When the AppImage file is done downloading, open up a terminal window. Then, use the CD command to move into the “Downloads” directory where the AppImage file is.

cd ~/Downloads

Update the AppImage file’s permissions, so that it is executable and can run as a program on your computer using the chmod command below.

sudo chmod +x atomicwallet.AppImage

Next, create a new directory in your home folder (~) with the name of “AppImages.”

mkdir -p ~/AppImages

Move the AppImage file into the folder using the mv command.

mv atomicwallet.AppImage ~/AppImages

You can then execute the program with:

./atomicwallet.AppImage

You can also launch the app by double-clicking on atomicwallet.AppImage in the ~/AppImage folder using the Linux file manager.

Fedora installation instructions

Atomic Wallet directly supports Fedora, so you’ll be able to get going with the app quite easily. To start the installation process, head over to the Atomic Wallet website, and click on the “Download” button.

After selecting the “Download” button, you’ll be taken to the download page. From here, look through the various computer operating system logos for the Fedora Linux logo and click on it. By selecting this logo, you will initiate the download for the Fedora RPM package file of Atomic Wallet.

When the download process is complete, launch a terminal window on the Fedora Linux desktop by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or Ctrl + Shift + T on the keyboard. Then, use the CD command to move the terminal into the “Downloads” folder.

cd ~/Downloads

Inside of the “Download” directory, the installation can begin. Using the dnf package manager, set up the latest release of Atomic Wallet on your Fedora Linux PC.

sudo dnf install atomicwallet.rpm

OpenSUSE installation instructions

OpenSUSE doesn’t have a logo on the Atomic Wallet website. Still, as OpenSUSE uses RPM package files, the Fedora version of the app should work fine on most releases. To start the installation, head over to the Atomic Wallet website, and click on “Downloads.”

Note: if this installation method does not work for you, follow the Arch Linux instructions instead.

After selecting the “Downloads” button, you will be taken to the “Downloads” page. Look for the Fedora Linux logo, and click on it to download the latest Fedora RPM package of Atomic Wallet to your OpenSUSE PC.

When the download is complete, launch a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or Ctrl + Shift + T. Then, use the CD command to move the terminal window into the “Downloads” directory.

cd ~/Downloads

Once inside of the “Downloads” directory, the installation can begin. Using the Zypper command, install Atomic Wallet.

sudo zypper install atomicwallet.rpm
