Intro

This blog post will guide you through the process of installing lokinet using our apt repo and is aimed at people whom are just getting into linux and may not know how to do such.

Setup

If you want to learn don't copy paste, if you want it to just do stuff and don't care yeah just copy paste.

Open up a terminal, in stock ubuntu it's control alt T.

Now we want to grab the apt repo's public keys, this is used to verify packages.

curl -s https://deb.imaginary.stream/public.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

(This requires you to enter your admin password because it is using sudo)

Next we want to add the apt repo to the system's apt repo list:

echo "deb https://deb.imaginary.stream $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/imaginary.stream.list

(This will auto detect what version you are using and add it to a file)

Now update apt and install lokinet

sudo apt update
sudo apt install lokinet

Usage

Once lokinet is installed it should be running in the background. The lokinet apt packages on ubuntu and debian automatically set up the required DNS settings for accessing SNApps.

If everything went okay you should be able to load the Lokinet Wiki which only is accessable with Lokinet. Make sure to check out and possibly add to the list of community run services here.

For help or idle chatter you can open an IRC client up and join our internal IRC network here, play nice, have fun and don't forget that everyone is in a very diverse set of timezones so people may be quiet.
