Graphical Installation

For installing TrueConf, we recommend using the graphical installer. The graphical installer can be invoked by (double) clicking the downloaded package. Depending on your distribution you will get different possibilities to install the package, e.g. Open with Ubuntu Software Center.

How to Install It?

You will need to run a command using the administrator account to launch the downloaded package:

dpkg -i trueconf-client-name.deb

To install missing dependencies, use the command:

apt-get -f install

TrueConf repository address is assigned automatically after the application installation.
