Installation on Linux

Flatpak: For all distributions

Many distros like Fedora and CentOS come with Flatpak pre-installed. If you distro does not support Flatpak out of the box check out the Flatpak Installation Guide.

Make sure you have the Flathub repo added to Flatpak — BabelEdit requires some base images from there. Many distros have it enabled by default.

Open a command line and run:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

Download the BabelEdit Flatpak and run the flatpak installer:

flatpak install /your/download/path/BabelEdit-[version].flatpak

BabelEdit should automatically appear in your Applications list.


This installation works for distros using the apt packet manager. If your OS does not support apt srcoll down and check out the section how to install BabelEdit using Flatpak.

Start by downloading BabelEdit .deb.

Open the downloads folder and click the BabelEdit-X.Y.Z.deb to install it using the software installer.

You can also use command line:

sudo apt-get install ./BabelEdit-2.8.0.deb
