Linux Installation Guide

All Linux Distributions

JASP is available for virtually all Linux distributions through the widely available flathub, a flatpak application distribution channel for linux . To use this you must have flatpak installed and if it isn’t yet it should be fairly simple to get it through your package manager.

Instructions on how to install JASP can be found on flathub.


If your computer has a so-called HiDPI screen you might find that JASP is incredibly large on your desktop. To avoid this try something like:


You can tweak the values to get a result that fits your screen, besides that you can also simply change the scaling in JASP, but it has some side-effects like minimum window size that will only be resolved through the above command.

JASP custom repository

Previously we distributed JASP ourselves and the instructions for that are kept here for good measure, but that repository will not be update further then 0.11 and it is highly recommended to install directly from flathub.

After you have installed flatpak enter the following command into a terminal:

flatpak install

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.jaspstats.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:

Users upgrading from a version of JASP previous to should notice that the name of the application has changed from org.jasp.JASP to org.jaspstats.JASP!

To fix this, simply run the following:

flatpak update && flatpak uninstall org.jasp.JASP && flatpak install org.jaspstats.JASP

Older versions (< 0.10)

Ubuntu LTS

Installation of older version than 0.10 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 --recv-keys E084DAB9

Then you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add deb 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
cd jasp-desktop-git
makepkg -si
