Nicotine+

Download Nicotine+

Download stable builds of Nicotine+ for your operating system.

GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris

If you have no need to modify the Nicotine+ source, you are strongly recommended to use packages for your distribution/operating system. This will save you time.

Ubuntu/Debian

To use stable packages on Ubuntu and Debian, add the stable Nicotine+ apt repository (PPA) by running the following:

sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nicotine-team/stable
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 6CEB6050A30E5769
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nicotine

If you prefer to install a .deb package directly, you can download one here. Unlike the repository installation method, Nicotine+ will not update automatically; you need to download a .deb package each time a new release is available.

Fedora

To install Nicotine+ on Fedora, run the following:

sudo dnf install nicotine+

Flatpak

If your distribution supports Flatpak, you can install Nicotine+ from Flathub.

Arch Linux/Manjaro/Parabola

Nicotine+ is available in the community repository of Arch Linux, Manjaro and Parabola. To install, run the following:

sudo pacman -S nicotine+

Void Linux

To install Nicotine+ on Void Linux, run the following:

sudo xbps-install -S nicotine+

FreeBSD

To install Nicotine+ on FreeBSD, run the following:

pkg install py-nicotine-plus

pip

If Nicotine+ is not available for your system, it can be installed using pip. Ensure the runtime dependencies are installed, and run the following:

pip3 install nicotine-plus

Keep in mind that Nicotine+ will not auto-update. When a new release is available, run the following:

pip3 install --upgrade nicotine-plus

Windows

Official Builds

Stable Windows installers for Nicotine+ are available for download. Installing Nicotine+ requires administrator privileges.

NOTE: The installer format has changed in Nicotine+ 3.2.0. If you are upgrading from Nicotine+ 3.1.1 or earlier, please uninstall Nicotine+ first (this will not remove your existing settings).

Portable packages are also available. They can be run from your home directory, and do not require installation or administrator privileges.

macOS

Official Builds (Catalina/10.15 and newer)

A stable macOS installer for Nicotine+ is available on macOS version 10.15 (Catalina) and newer.

Homebrew (Mojave/10.14 and newer)

NOTE: If your Mac has an Apple M1 chip, please use the official installer instead. Nicotine+ installed from Homebrew will currently not work on these devices due to issues in upstream dependencies.

On macOS version 10.14 (Mojave), the recommended approach is to install Nicotine+ using Homebrew.

Once Homebrew is set up, run the following:

brew install nicotine-plus
