Launcher Installation

How to install the Humanode Launcher
Install the Humanode Launcher on your local system - your desktop or your workstation.
The app itself supports running the peer locally or remotely - so if you'd like to deploy the node at the cloud, still install the desktop app on your local system, and then install the peer through the app to the remote system.

Installing the Launcher

Please visit the Humanode Launcher downloads page:
Then follow the instructions for your specific platform.
We officially support using Humanode Launcher on Ubuntu 20.04, but other distros might work.
For Linux we ship DEB and RPM archives that you can install with a package manager, as well as ZIP archive if you'd like to manage the installation manually.
We also provide APT and YUM repos that allow you to receive the Humanode Launcher updates via the system package management tools - for instructions on how to use them see the downloads website.
To install the Launcher from a ZIP archive download the archive and unpack it. Then you can cd to the unpacked directory and run the ./humanode-launcher from the terminal.
We provide builds for both Intel and Apple Silicon. Pick the one that's appropriate for your system.
Once you download the ZIP archive for your platform - extract it, move the app to the Applications folder, and launch!
For Windows, we provide an installer (a .exe file) and a ZIP archive.
We recommend the installer, as it provides a zero-hassle experience - just download and run it.
You can also download a ZIP in case you have issues with the installer or would like to manage the installation manually. Once downloaded, do not run the app from inside a mounted zip location because it will create inconsistencies. Instead, make sure to simply unzip the archive and run the app from there.
