# 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.

TIP

If you have jq (opens new window) installed you can also download the latest AppImage directly:

# query the latest Linux release from the QOwnNotes API, parse the JSON for the URL and download it
curl -L https://api.qownnotes.org/latest_releases/linux | jq .url | xargs curl -Lo QOwnNotes-x86_64.AppImage
1
2

Then you can change the execute-permissions on the file:

chmod a+x QOwnNotes-*.AppImage
1

Afterwards you should be able to execute the AppImage to run QOwnNotes.

WARNING

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.

TIP

If you have troubles running the AppImage, because your glibc version is too old you can try the AppImage built on OBS (opens new window), it should be built with glibc 2.16.
