Installing itch on Fedora
While you can simply head to https://itch.io/app and grab the latest .rpm, we recommend you add our package repository instead, so that the app can remain up-to-date.
Adding our YUM repository
We publish .rpm packages of every release on Bintray:
Importing our GPG key
The packages we publish are digitally signed, so that you can ensure that we are the ones that published it, and no one else.
To allow your package manager to verify those signatures, you need to import our GPG key. You can do so by running the following command in a terminal:
sudo rpm --import https://dl.itch.ovh/archive.key
This will prompt for your password, since
sudo is used.
Adding the .repo file
wget https://bintray.com/itchio/rpm/rpm -O itchio.repo sudo mv itchio.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
Installing & updating
If you have successfully added our package repository, installing should be as simple as running
sudo yum install itch from a terminal.
The package provides:
- An applications menu shortcut (via a .desktop file)
/usr/bin/itchlauncher script, for command-line usage
Refer to your distribution's manual to know how to keep packages up-to-date. Most desktop environments have some sort of graphical interface to prompt you to install updates, and you can always run
sudo yum update yourself in a terminal.
sudo yum remove itch to uninstall itch from your system.
Note that this won't remove your library, which resides at
along with any additional install locations you have added from the app.
If you really want to uninstall everything, you'll have to take care of that folder as well.
