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.

But you could also enter the following in a terminal:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
flatpak install flathub org.jaspstats.JASP


Should you want to uninstall JASP for any reason you can use the following command:

flatpak uninstall org.jaspstats.JASP && flatpak uninstall --unused

Ubuntu, Mint and other Ubuntu derivatives

Because the flatpak shipped with these systems is often outdated it is recommended to follow this guide to get a ppa with the latest versions.

Font problem in plots

If the fonts in your plots are not rendered properly it might be the same issue as is described here.
To solve this problem you can simply execute the following in a terminal:

flatpak run --command=fc-cache org.jaspstats.JASP -f -v


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.

Start from console

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 first try:

flatpak repair

And you can always contact us for support or you can try to build JASP from source, see:
