  1. Hi,
    I can’t install Iris via the terminal method (Iris couldn’t be found). So I downloaded “Iris 0.9.9 Linux 64 bit zip”. (I am running Linux Mint 19, Cinnamon, 64 Bit)

    So, once downloaded, what do I do with the download to install it from there?? (The download file is in the archive manager, so I need to know which file to extract it too…) I am not an experienced Linux downloader….


  2. Hello! Trying to run the Appimage from the *.tar.gz, in Manjaro Illyria 18.0 Cinnamon, it indicates:

    This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin “xcb”
    in “”.
    Available platform plugins are: xcb

    A related thread ( indicates to use the following line, which works, but in keeps running only in the Taskbar without creating a shortcut in the Desktop (additionally, Iris flickers):

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib QT_QPA_PLATFORM_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms ./iris-mini-0.3.8.AppImage

  3. Hi there, I have located and tried to open (double click) on (from within the downloaded zip file), but all that happens is that I get about 1/4 of a page of text in a new window… your email said to ‘run the’… is double clicking on it what you meant? (I received the ZIP download, not the ‘tar.gz’ download that’s mentioned in the how to install into Linux guide on your site..

    Thanks, Peter

  4. Many here are having difficulties setting up Iris. I have Linux Mint 18.1 “Serena” MATE 1.16.1. (64 bit)

    Download the correct zip file. Extract to a new folder (I placed my new folder, now named “Iris”, in my documents folder under “Home”). Once extracted, search for either of the following files:

    “Iris” [double-click (or right click “open”), the program setup loads] -or–
    “” (right click “run”, the tray icon now appears–looks like a color wheel–you’ll immediately notice your screen will dim to a almost beige or light pink )

    after 7-day trial:
    $15 lifetime, no updates, 1 machine
    $2/month ($24/yr), all updates, 1 machine
    $50 lifetime, one time pay, “pro” version, all updates, 1 machine

  5. Hi. After upgrading my Bodhi Linux to 5.0.0 I re-downloaded Iris but I can’t get it to work now. I extracted the zip file and ran the following the command.

    ~/util/Iris$ sh
    libGL error: unable to load driver:
    libGL error: driver pointer missing
    libGL error: failed to load driver: r600
    libGL error: unable to load driver:
    libGL error: driver pointer missing
    libGL error: failed to load driver: r600
    libGL error: unable to load driver:
    libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
    First start
    chmod: cannot access ‘/home/samastah/.local/share/applications/Iris.desktop’: No such file or directory
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    I manually copied the .desktop file to the applications directory which got rid of that error, but all the other errors remain. I am happy to make payment but I want to check it works first.

    Any ideas?

  6. It’s really hard to get Iris working on all Linux distros

    Most of the time it’s just some .so library missing but there are different drivers, different rendering systems, different distros

    I will try now to make a new version for Ubuntu and Mint and maybe after this will start to search for a person whose entire job will be to build Iris for different Linux distributions

    My best suggestion at the moment is to use Iris micro (

    It has no dependencies and should work on every Linux which uses X11 which are almost all Linux distributions

    I really want to make Iris great for Linux and sorry for the bad experience with the program
