Install Mullvad app on Linux

MULLVAD APP


This guide explains how to install and uninstall the Mullvad VPN app for Linux users.

Installation requirements

  • The app works on most modern distributions but does not support Ubuntu 14.04 and all Linux distributions based on Ubuntu 14.04.
  • You need a kernel version newer than 4.8.
  • You need 64-bit Linux.
  • If you still have the old, deprecated Mullvad client on your computer, you first need to uninstall it. Otherwise, you will run into issues with the app.

Download and install the app

We provide terminal instructions farther down.

  1. Download the latest version of the app from our website.
  2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the prompts to install the app.

Terminal instructions

If you prefer using the terminal, use the following commands to download the file, and then follow our Mullvad CLI guide.

Debian/Ubuntu users

We are using gdebi in this example.

You will need to replace "MullvadVPN-XXXX.X_amd64.deb" with the name of the file that you download.

wget --content-disposition https://mullvad.net/download/latest-deb-app
sudo apt-get -y install gdebi-core && sudo gdebi MullvadVPN-XXXX.X_amd64.deb

Fedora users

You will need to replace "MullvadVPN-XXXX.X_amd64.rpm" with the name of the file that you download.

wget --content-disposition https://mullvad.net/download/latest-rpm-app
sudo dnf -y install ./MullvadVPN-XXXX.X_amd64.rpm

Uninstall the app

Run the command apt-get purge mullvad-vpn.
