For this setup, the process is documented using the Ubuntu 20.04 distro (opens in a new tab). Steps would be similar for other distros. We recommend installing your choice of browser and file manager. The link above provides steps for Edge and Nautilus.

Once the environment is set up, Replay can be installed using a list of commands from the Ubuntu command line.

  1. Download the Linux package of Replay.
sudo curl []( -L -o /opt/linux-replay.tar.bz2
  1. Extract the package.
cd /opt/
sudo tar -xvf linux-replay.tar.bz2
sudo rm -rf linux-replay.tar.bz2
  1. Run the browser.
cd replay
sudo ./replay

The application should start 🎉
