Hiri was recently made available as a snap package on Linux. We intend to make this the default installation method for Hiri on Linux. The .tar.gz archive will be kept for distros where Snaps aren't supported.
The package is still beta so there could be things that aren't working as they should be. If you run into problems please open a support ticket.
Make sure that you have
snapd installed on your system. If you're running Ubuntu 16.04 or newer, you'll have it installed by default.
If you're on Ubuntu 14.04, you'll have to install snapd (snap daemon):
sudo apt-get install snapd
If you're running a different distro, see How to install snapd on other distros.
Install Hiri snap package:
sudo snap install hiri
To be able to open links in emails you'll need to install
snapd-xdg-open. On Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install snapd-xdg-open
If you're running a different distro, you'll have to check if this package is ported. This requirement will be dropped in future versions of snapd.
