Installing Feather on Linux
Using TailsOS? See the instructions here instead.
Download the latest AppImage for Linux from featherwallet.org/download.
Verifying the download (optional)
This section describes how to verify the AppImage file using PGP. You need a basic understanding of the Linux command line to follow the steps in this section. If you get stuck, feel free to ask for help.
Download the release signing key from the git repository. To save the file from Tor Browser: right click → Save Page As.. → Save. (For alternative ways of obtaining the release signing key, see: Release signing key)
Go back to featherwallet.org/download and download the signature file for the AppImage.
Place both files in the same directory as the AppImage. You should now have a folder that contains
In a terminal,
cd to the directory that contains the files and enter:
gpg --import featherwallet.asc and press enter. The output should contain a line that says:
gpg: key 0x1F76E155CEFBA71C: public key "FeatherWallet <email@example.com>" imported
gpg --list-keys firstname.lastname@example.org and press enter. The output should contain a line that says:
Key fingerprint = 8185 E158 A333 30C7 FD61 BC0D 1F76 E155 CEFB A71C
Make sure the fingerprint shown above matches the output in your terminal. We recommend that you also cross-check the fingerprint through the domains listed here. By cross-checking the integrity of the fingerprint across multiple domains you can be confident that you obtained the correct key.
If the fingerprint does not match, do not continue the installation. Instead, report this incident to the developers.
gpg --verify feather-x.x.x.AppImage.asc and press enter. Replace x.x.x with the correct version. If the signature is valid, the output should contain the following line:
gpg: Good signature from "FeatherWallet <email@example.com>" [unknown]
If the signature is invalid, do not continue with the installation. Instead, report this incident to the developers immediately.
After the download is complete, make sure to allow executing the file as a program. You can often find this setting in the Properties → Permissions tab in your file explorer. Alternatively, run
chmod +x feather-x.x.x.AppImage in a terminal.
You should now be able to run the AppImage by double-clicking on the file in a file explorer. If that does not work, try right-clicking on the file, and look for “Run” or “Open”. Alternatively, you can start Feather by typing
./feather-x.x.x.AppImage in a terminal.
