The easiest way to install Goodvibes is to use the package manager of your distribution, or to install via Flatpak.

If your distrib doesn’t provide a package, or if you want to install a more recent version, have a look below.


codename=$(lsb_release -sc)
sudo tee << EOF /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elboulangero.list
deb ${codename:?} main

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-key FFD52770DD5A8135
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install goodvibes

At the moment, you will find packages for stretch and buster.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elboulangero/goodvibes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install goodvibes
