sudo snap install riseup-vpn --classic

You can track beta channel, where we push versions to test:

sudo snap install riseup-vpn --classic --beta


There's a package in AUR that tracks main branch, so expect some instabilities (early birds catch the bugs they say, and we're thankful for that)

yaourt -Sy riseup-vpn-git


An ebuild is available in Gentoo's main repository.

emerge riseup-vpn


We haven't updated deb.leap.se repo yet 😞 (see #466), but if you really desire a debian package you can build your own for the time being:

debuild -us -uc
sudo dpkg -i ../riseup-vpn*.deb

If you're using ubuntu, you can use kali's ppa.


Clone this repo, install dependencies and build the application. Dependencies assume debian packages, or homebrew for osx. For Windows OS see corresponding section below. For other systems try manually, or send us a patch.

  git clone git@0xacab.org:leap/bitmask-vpn.git && cd bitmask-vpn
  sudo make depends  # do not use sudo in osx 
  make build

You need at least go 1.11.

If you have Ubuntu Bionic/18.04, the package in the repositories is too old. To resolve this, you can do make install_go. Do not do this if you have a later version.

For other situations, have a look at https://github.com/golang/go/wiki#working-with-go


You can run some tests too.

  sudo apt install qml-module-qttest
  make test
  make test_ui


As for now app can be build on Win OS using Cygwin terminal.


You need to have installed and added to your user PATH (mentioned version tested in Win10):

  1. Go (>= go1.15.4)
  2. QT (>= Qt5.12.9)
  3. QtIFW (>= QtIFW-4.0.0)
  4. Cygwin64 (>= 2.905 64 bit)
  5. Using Cygwin Package Select window install python3 and make packages.

Note: for #5 you don't need to add packages to PATH they will available in cygwin after installation.

Get Source

    git clone git@0xacab.org:leap/bitmask-vpn.git && cd bitmask-vpn


Build script uses a symbolic link in one of the stages. Unfortunately Cygwin can't create native symlink from local non
admin user due to windows security restriction. To avoid this issue we need to call next target from cygwin terminal as
Administrator. This need to be done only once.

    make relink_vendor

After relink_vendor use this to build the app:

    make build

After successful build application will be available at: build/qt/release/riseup-vpn.exe


To run tests:

    make test
    make test_ui


We use transifex to coordinate translations. Any help is welcome!
