Linux Installation Guide

All Linux Distributions

JASP is now available for virtually all Linux distributions through the widely available flatpak. This is most likely already installed on your distribution and otherwise can be  easily acquired through your package manager. After you have installed flatpak enter the following command into a terminal:

flatpak install http://static.jasp-stats.org/flatpak/JASP.flatpakref

It might not be automatically added to the application menu in some cases (ubuntu for instance) and there you can start JASP by running:

flatpak run org.jasp.JASP

After you have installed JASP from flatpak any new releases/updates can be installed by running:

flatpak update

Should the flatpak install fail to work for some reason you can always contact us for support or you can try to build JASP from source, see: https://github.com/jasp-stats/jasp-desktop.

Ubuntu LTS

Installation under Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) can also be handled through a PPA. JASP is available in a PPA for the latest long term support version 18.04 (Bionic Beaver). To install this it is also necessary to get some extra R packages installed on your computer. First you need to add a key to apt from your terminal:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys E084DAB9

Then you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add deb https://cloud.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu bionic-cran35/ to a new line at the end.
(To open this file try entering sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list from your terminal)

After that you need to run the following lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marutter/c2d4u3.5
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jasp-uva/jasp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install jasp

And then to install the last missing R packages from CRAN run the following:
sudo Rscript -e "install.packages(c('BSDA', 'IsingFit', 'IsingSampler', 'NetworkToolbox', 'bootnet', 'emmeans', 'ggedit', 'hmeasure', 'mgm', 'ppcor'))"

Arch Linux: JASP is made generously available for Arch Linux by Stephen Martin, and can be installed with the following commands:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/jasp-desktop-git.git
cd jasp-desktop-git
makepkg -si
