Linux for Starters: Your Guide to Linux – Files and Permissions – Part 10

Last Updated on May 22, 2022

Installing Hyper

We’ve received a lot of feedback asking about Hyper. It’s not the default terminal in Ubuntu. It isn’t available in the Ubuntu Software app. But installation is fairly straightforward. Follow this process:

Start Firefox and enter the address https://github.com/vercel/hyper/releases

Download the x64 deb file (hyper_3.1.1_amd64.deb). Save it to ~/Downloads/

Start the Terminal program. At the shell type:

$ cd ~/Downloads
$ sudo dpkg -i hyper_3.1.1_amd64.deb

On a vanilla installation of Ubuntu 21.04, this command proceeded with problems. With an earlier version of hyper, dependency problems prevent the installation from proceeding. If you do run into such a problem, complete the installation with these two steps.

$ sudo apt update --fix-missing

$ sudo apt install -f
