Installing the Linux Client
Make sure you have snap installed before installing the WhatPulse snap. You can install the Snap package from Snapcraft by running:
snap install --devmode --beta whatpulse
After that, you can run the command
whatpulse to start the client.
Keyboard and Mouse (Input) Permissions
You may need to download and run the
setup-input-permissions.sh script in order for WhatPulse to access your keyboard and mouse input devices. Use the below command sequence to download and run the permissions script.
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 and/or AppImage environment.
- Snap: is not supported in Wayland.
- Both packages: Unpulsed and application traffic is not counted.
