Fedora/Red Hat Enterprise Linux

The Copr builds RPMs for latest Fedora and RHEL 7. If you're using other RHEL-based distributions such as CentOS and Scientific Linux, you can just use the EPEL repo in Copr (also, please ensure you've already enabled EPEL repository).

You can enable the repo via dnf:

sudo dnf copr enable librehat/shadowsocks
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install shadowsocks-qt5

You may need to install a dnf plugin via the command below, before you can enable copr repo using dnf.

sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core

If your distribution doesn't have dnf, you can download the corresponding yum repo from Copr and put it under /etc/yum.repos.d/, then install shadowsocks-qt5 via yum:

sudo yum update
sudo yum install shadowsocks-qt5


PPA is for Ubuntu >= 14.04.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hzwhuang/ss-qt5
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shadowsocks-qt5


Make sure you've installed all dependencies for building ss-qt5 by sudo apt-get install qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev libqrencode-dev libqtshadowsocks-dev libappindicator-dev libzbar-dev libbotan1.10-dev

Now run the command below, you'll get a deb package in upper directory.

dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -b

Then, install it by sudo dpkg -i shadowsocks-qt5-<VER_ARCH_ETC>.deb.
