The easiest way to install Goodvibes is to use the package provided by your Linux distribution, if any. It’s 100% hassle free, however you might not get the latest version.

To get latest version, the easiest way is to install the Flatpak app. Another option is to use an unofficial repository for your Linux distro, if any.

At last, it’s always possible to grab the source code and build it.


flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
flatpak install flathub io.gitlab.Goodvibes


sudo apt install goodvibes
sudo mv arnaudr-archive-key.asc /usr/share/keyrings/

codename=$(lsb_release -sc)
sudo tee << EOF /etc/apt/sources.list.d/goodvibes.list
deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/arnaudr-archive-key.asc] ${codename:?} goodvibes

sudo apt update
sudo apt install goodvibes


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