# Install as AppImage
You can download the latest AppImage from the QOwnNotes releases page (opens new window).
It should be named like
QOwnNotes-x86_64.AppImage on that page.
Then you can change the execute-permissions on the file:
chmod a+x QOwnNotes-*.AppImage
Afterwards you should be able to execute the AppImage to run QOwnNotes.
If you want to use the automatic updater please make sure to put your AppImage in a place where your user account has write access to, like somewhere in your home directory.
