Debian and Ubuntu based distributions
Tested on Ubuntu 16.04-18.04, Debian 9.9, Mint 19.1
The easiest way to install Monitask for Debian/Ubuntu based distributions is to download and install the .deb package either through the graphical interface center if it's available, or through the command line with:
sudo apt install ./monitask.deb # Or if you are on older Linux distributions, you will need to run this instead: # sudo dpkg -i ./monitask.deb # sudo apt-get install -f # Install Dependencies
Installing the .deb package will automatically install the apt repository and signing key to enable auto updating using the system's package manager..
The repository and key can also be installed with the following script:
wget -qO - https://deskcap.blob.core.windows.net/deployment/Linux/deb/Release/PUBLIC.KEY | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb https://deskcap.blob.core.windows.net/deployment/Linux/deb/Release bionic main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/monitask.list
Then update the package cache and install Monitask using:
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install monitask
RHEL, Fedora, and CentOS based distributions
Tested on Fedora 28-30, CentOS 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
The easiest way to install Monitask for Fedora/CentOS based distributions is to download and install the .rpm package either through the graphical interface center if it's available, or through the command line with:
sudo rpm -i ./monitask.rpm # Another way is to use yum or dnf: # sudo yum localinstall ./monitask.rpm # sudo dnf localinstall ./monitask.rpm
Installing the .rpm package will automatically install the yum repository and signing key to enable auto updating using the system's package manager.
We ship rpm package in a yum repository, the following script can also be used to install the key and repository:
sudo rpm --import https://deskcap.blob.core.windows.net/deployment/Linux/rpm/Release/PUBLIC.KEY sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[Monitask]\nname=Monitask\nbaseurl=https://deskcap.blob.core.windows.net/deployment/Linux/rpm/Release/x86_64\ngpgkey=https://deskcap.blob.core.windows.net/deployment/Linux/rpm/Release/PUBLIC.KEY" > /etc/yum.repos.d/Monitask.repo'
Then update the package cache and install Monitask using dnf (Fedora 22 and above):
dnf check-update sudo dnf install monitask
Or on older versions using yum:
yum check-update sudo yum install monitask
