# Standalone Bundles
# Introduction
<%= render({:partial => 'common/download_button'}, {:link => 'https://dl.bitmask.net/client/linux/stable/Bitmask-linux64-latest.tar.gz', :text => 'Download Stable Bundle (64 bit)'}) %>
There are two ways to install Bitmask on Linux, as a **package** or as a stand-alone **bundle**.
The [[signature => https://dl.bitmask.net/client/linux/stable/Bitmask-linux64-latest.tar.gz.asc]] can be [[verified => signature-verification]] using LEAP's archive signing key. You can also browse [[all the downloads => https://dl.bitmask.net/client/linux]], including release candidates.
* **Packages**: run faster, and are better integrated with the desktop environment.
* **Bundles**: do not require root, and can be installed on a portable thumb drive.
# Experimental bundles
To find out which distribution you are running, open a terminal and type in the following:
If you want to try the latest code, new bundles are continously built.
cat /etc/issue
<%= render({:partial => 'common/download_button'}, {:link => 'https://0xacab.org/leap/bitmask-dev/builds/artifacts/master/download?job=bitmask_latest_bundle', :text => 'Download Experimental Bundle (64 bit)'}) %>
# Stand Alone Bundle
# Debian/ubuntu
The Bitmask stand alone bundle should work on most recent versions of Debian and Ubuntu. You are welcome to try the bundle on other distributions, it sometimes works. Alternately, you can [[build it from source => https://leap.se/en/docs/get-involved/source]].
sudo apt install leap-archive-keyring
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://deb.leap.se/client stretch release" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
sudo apt update && sudo apt install bitmask-qt bitmask-vpn bitmask-mail
Our most recent stable release is only available for a 64 bit kernel.
Change ``stretch`` for ``zesty`` or ``buster``, according to your distro. [[ Read more => debs ]] about our different repositories.

[[Signature file => https://dl.bitmask.net/client/linux/stable/Bitmask-linux64-latest.tar.gz.asc]]
Optionally, you can [[authenticate the signature => signature-verification]] using LEAP's archive signing key.
# Other
If you want to try an experimental or release candidate versions of Bitmask, you can browse the [[full list of available downloads => https://dl.bitmask.net/client/linux]].

# Upgrading
**From stand-alone bundles**: Bitmask should upgrade itself automatically (for versions equal or later than 0.7.0). If you are running a version prior to 0.7.0, you can download the new bundle and copy the "config" folder from the old bundle directory.
**From packages**: If you are running from packages, then you can trigger an update like so:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
**NOTE:** When upgrading the version of your operating system, you must also follow the directions listed under "When upgrading the OS" above.
# Latest builds
For the more adventurous we make stand alone bundle builds available after each commit or merge. Currently best tested again cdev.bitmask.net, because of ongoing changes of Soledad.
<%= render({:partial => 'common/download_button'}, {:link => 'https://0xacab.org/leap/bitmask-dev/builds/artifacts/master/download?job=bitmask_latest_bundle', :text => 'Download latest experimental bundle'}) %>
If none of the above methods works for you, you can try to install [[ via pip => pip ]] or [[ from source => git ]], or get in contact with us if you want to package Bitmask for some other distribution.
