Installing ProtonMail Bridge for Linux using an RPM file

This article explains how to verify and install an RPM package on your Linux device. 

  • Download the file to the current working directory 
  • Download the public key `bridge_pubkey.gpg` to the current working directory 
  • Import the public key into the RPM keyring:

sudo rpm --import bridge_pubkey.gpg

  • Check the downloaded RPM package file by running:

rpm --checksig protonmail-bridge-1.2.6-1.x86_64.rpm

If the check passes, you should see this:

protonmail-bridge-1.2.6-1.x86_64.rpm: digests signatures OK

  • Install the package using your package manager: 

dnf install protonmail-bridge-1.2.6-1.x86_64.rpm

Please make sure that file names in the commands match the downloaded Bridge version. If the latest version is displayed as v1.2.6, you need to enter it as 1.2.6.-1
