This guide will show you how to set up NordLayer application on Linux based operating systems.

  1. Download the repository package

  2. In Terminal, go to the directory where you have downloaded the package, and run these commands:

Debian commands:

sudo apt-get install ./nordlayer-latest_1.0.0_all.deb

RHEL commands:

sudo yum install ./nordlayer-latest-1.0.0-noarch.rpm
  1. Update your package lists:

Debian commands:

sudo apt-get update

RHEL commands:

sudo yum makecache
  1. Install the application from your package manager:

Debian commands:

sudo apt-get install nordlayer

RHEL commands:

sudo yum install nordlayer
  1. Add your user to the application group. The application runs on its own system user and group, so only members of the group have permission to use it:
sudo usermod -a -G nordlayer $(whoami)

Note: that this change will only take effect at the next login, so log in again or reboot.

That’s it! For instructions on how to use the NordLayer application on Linux, we have created a separate guide listing all the options.
