Installing Discord on Linux Lite 3.4

Discord is a voice and text chat application aimed at gamers but can be used by anyone. Is is currently available on Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Android, iPhone, Windows, OSX, and Linux….Basically everywhere. There is also a tutorial for installing on Fedora 25 here.

Installing Discord on Linux Lite 3.4 is easy

  1. Go to this webpage, click on ‘Download for Linux’ and then ‘deb’ to download the installer.
  2. Go to the folder it downloaded into, right click and select ‘Open Terminal Here’.
  3. In the terminal type sudo dpkg -i discord-0.0.1.deb (replacing discord-0.0.1.deb with the name of the file you downloaded).
  4. Press enter and type your administrative password.
  5. Wait for it to install and then close the terminal.
  6. Open the ‘Menu’ on the left base of screen and type ‘discord’, press enter and it will start.

On my system it seemed to use a lot of resources on first start but after updating itself it worked just fine.

It was created for gamers but is also used by Internet Party NZ for many of it’s internal meetings, voice chat, and group sessions. It allows you to create personal, public and private chat rooms. In general it is much loved.
