You can try Liri OS with the live image and eventually install it from there, or use packages for Arch Linux and Fedora, or build the source code.

Remember that Liri OS is currently in  alpha  stage and there might be issues.

Here instructions on how to install packages for Arch Linux and Fedora.

After installing the packages, you can log into the desktop from SDDM or GDM, select Liri from the session menu and type your password.

Arch Linux

You can install the desktop and applications on Arch Linux from AUR.

Install the liri-git-meta package with your favorite AUR too.


You can install packages that are updated as soon as changes hit the Git repositories, with the liri-nightly COPR repository.

sudo dnf copr enable plfiorini/liri-nightly

To install the shell:

sudo dnf install -y \
    liri-networkmanager \
    liri-platformtheme \
    liri-power-manager \
    liri-pulseaudio \
    liri-screencast \
    liri-screenshot \
    liri-settings \
    liri-shell \
    liri-wallpapers \
    qml-xwayland \
    xdg-desktop-portal-liri \
    paper-icon-theme \

And core apps:

sudo dnf install -y \
    liri-appcenter \
    liri-calculator \
    liri-files \
    liri-terminal \
    liri-browser \

Nightly live images are available here.
The live image supports x86_64 and is based on Fedora with the liri-nightly COPR repository.

The image can be used to install the operating system that users rpm-ostree and has atomic updates. Check the OSTree documentation if you want to know more about it.

Hardware Support

Hardware supported by Open Source drivers should work. Here's the list of supported GPUs:

  • Intel: i915 or newer cards
  • AMD/ATI: using the open source driver except for cards supported by radeonsi
  • NVIDIA: cards supported by the nouveau open source driver
  • VMware
  • QEMU with QXL

VirtualBox does not currently support Wayland reliably, please use other virtualization solutions such as virt-manager.

Download source code from here.

We have two channels available: stable with official releases and unstable with nightly builds.

First of all make sure you have Flatpak installed by following this tutorial.

Then install the repositories:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists liri

Install apps from the stable channel:

flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Calculator//stable
flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Terminal//stable
flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Text//stable

Install apps from the unstable channel:

flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Browser//master
flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Calculator//master
flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Files//master
flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Terminal//master
flatpak install -y liri io.liri.Text//master
