6 thoughts on “How to Install Iris on Linux Ubuntu”
Iris is making my screen flicker. How can I uninstall it on Ubuntu?
Is it possible that you are running two versions of Iris (or another similar program) at the same time? They conflict with each other and may cause this
If you want to uninstall you can just close Iris and delete the associated files that you downloaded
Please can you post a link to the download the appimage file? The https://iristech.co/download-linux-x64 download link downloads a .zip file with, as far as I can see, no appimage.
You can use this one 🙂
Same issue as @Rialer: the Linux download file is a .zip file, no tar file. When following link to github I can’t find the iris tar file, sorry.
You can download from here:
