KXStudio : Repositories

The KXStudio repositories support all Debian versions since 10 (Buster) and Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) or above including Ubuntu 20.04.
They should work on all Debian-based distributions and variants.
A computer running intel-based 32bit or 64bit with SSE2 is required, or alternatively an ARM-based system (32bit with neon-vfpv4 or 64bit).

Once you have the repos installed, you can either manually install individual packages from them or add the meta-packages to automatically install large sets of recommended packages.
See the Meta-Packages page for more details.
In either case, we always recommend to install the kxstudio-default-settings package after enabling the repositories.

Bug reports and package requests should be posted in the Repository project page.
Below is information on how to enable the repositories.

Debian / Ubuntu

All Debian and Ubuntu users can enable our repositories by installing this deb file: kxstudio-repos.deb.
You can install it manually by running this:

# Install required dependencies if needed
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https gpgv

# Remove legacy repos
sudo dpkg --purge kxstudio-repos-gcc5

# Download package file
wget https://launchpad.net/~kxstudio-debian/+archive/kxstudio/+files/kxstudio-repos_10.0.3_all.deb

# Install it
sudo dpkg -i kxstudio-repos_10.0.3_all.deb

These packages contain:

  • Various sources files that activates the separate repositories
  • GPG keys used for package and repository signing
  • A post-install script that clears up legacy repository setup

Please do not copy these instructions to your own website, wiki, etc.
The packages file link might change at anytime, and so the instructions themselves.
Always refer to this exact page for how-to enable the KXStudio repositories please.
