I have tried to install ipfs using their instructions. Yet I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

Could anyone help me with this,


Sampath :):)

  • assuming that this is still not resolved ... I am running loki and followed the directions on the web site ......... seems to test out fine ......... you DID do "sudo ./install.sh" where you un-tarred the file ...didn't you ... and you did download the correct architecture? Sep 17 '17 at 10:46

You might want to try via a Snap package:

sudo apt install snapd
sudo snap install ipfs

Right now it works on older linuxes only. Arch, Wheezy, etc.


I would also recommend using their snap package.
A non command-line way of doing that would be to:

  1. Install Snaptastic from the AppCenter
  2. Visit: https://snapcraft.io/ipfs
  3. Click Install
  4. Install snap package using Snaptastic.
