Choose Installation Method

There are two ways how to install Nuvola Player on your system. Choose the one which suits you best.

  1. User-friendly graphical installation: Users who are not friends with a terminal can take advantage of an easy-to-use graphical installer. This method is recommended to less experienced users.

  2. Manual installation from terminal: Power users who are excellent in command-line kung-fu can just add the Nuvola Player Repository manually and install Nuvola Player using common package management tools of your linux distribution. Then skip to the section Check format support. This method is not recommended to less experienced users. Any mistake can break your system.
