BC Vault Desktop Application for Linux is available in form of an executable installer and compressed in .tar.gz archive file (to preserve executable flags and create a smaller file). This is the most common form of file distribution in *NIX space. 

If you do not know how to proceed, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the latest .tar.gz file from here.
  2. Open a terminal and go to the directory where you downloaded the file to (for example: "cd /home/user/Downloads/").
  3. Extract the file archive with the command "tar zxvf setup_x.x.x.tar.gz" (use the actual downloaded filename not x.x.x).
  4. Execute the installer with the command "./BCVaultSetup"

On newer Linux installations you might have to install the libfuse2 library for the application to work (RPM based Linux "yum install fuse-libs" or Debian based Linux "apt-get -y install fuse").
