The desktop version of online editors does not require constant connection to the internet and can work with local files.

To install Desktop Editors, you can use one of the following options:

  • download a .deb package from our website,
    Only 64-bit versions of Linux are supported.

    After you press the download button for the required package, some browsers may suggest choosing a target directory. Select it, and the download process will start. When it is complete, run the downloaded package file to install the Desktop Editors on your computer.

  • use AppImage, Flatpak, Snap,
  • add the repository to your Linux OS and update it afterwards just like any other Linux application.

This guide describes installing ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors from repository.

Installing ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors from repository

A better option to install desktop editors is to add their repository to your Linux OS. To do that:

  1. Add GPG key:
    mkdir -p -m 700 ~/.gnupg
    gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring gnupg-ring:/tmp/onlyoffice.gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys CB2DE8E5
    chmod 644 /tmp/onlyoffice.gpg
    sudo chown root:root /tmp/onlyoffice.gpg
    sudo mv /tmp/onlyoffice.gpg /usr/share/keyrings/onlyoffice.gpg
  2. Add desktop editors repository:
    echo 'deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/onlyoffice.gpg] squeeze main' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/onlyoffice.list
    While the APT package is built against Debian Squeeze, it is compatible with a number of Debian derivatives (including Ubuntu) which means you can use the same repository across all these distributions.
  3. Update the package manager cache:
    sudo apt-get update
  4. Now the editors can be easily installed using the following command:
    sudo apt-get install onlyoffice-desktopeditors
