Using the Linux installer

If you’re running a Linux system and want to either build the latest version, or want to run the MIDIMonster on an architecture that is not available for the binary downloads, the following commands download the installer, make it executable and finally, start it:

wget ./
chmod +x ./

The installer can also be used for automating installations or upgrades by specifying additional command line arguments. To see a list of valid arguments, run the installer with the –help argument.

The installer script can also update MIDIMonster to the latest version automatically, using a configuration file generated during the installation. To do so, run

#> midimonster-updater

as root on your system after using the installer.
