Install Instructions

Method 1: Flatpak

OMP now has Flatpak support! That means any distribution that supports Flatpak is now supported by OMP! An official Flathub package will be provided soon. It is still being worked to meet Flathub's approval standards. More news about it is coming in the near future. Check for mentions about it in the Weekly News Updates on OMP's website at

Until the official Flathub release, read the guide for installing OMP's Flatpak at OMP's official website.

Method 2: Arch User Repository

You can install OMP via AUR with the official omp AUR package for the stable build or the omp-git AUR package for the latest git build.

Once compiled and installed, you can run omp as a command to open it.

Method 3 : Manual Dependency Retrieval and Makefile

You will need to manually install all of the dependencies before being able to use the compile and install instructions for this method. OMP is currently only tested as working with Arch Linux.

To compile and then install, run the following commands in a new folder containing the source.

sudo make install

Once compiled and installed, you can run omp as a command to open it.
