Linux installation

Installation:

Install by running: snap install --devmode --beta whatpulse

The client tries to do this at install, but you may need to download and run setup-input-permissions.sh in order for WhatPulse to access your input devices: https://static.whatpulse.org/files/linux/setup-input-permissions.sh

If your browser won't let you download .sh scripts, use this:

curl -o setup-input-permissions.sh https://whatpulse.org/files/linux/setup-input-permissions.sh
sudo sh setup-input-permissions.sh

The UI will also warning you when the input permissions are not set up correctly.

All client features are available, except for a few that are limited by the confinement of the snap environment.

Known limitations:

  • Not supported in Wayland (yet).
  • Unpulsed and application traffic is not counted.
