September 2021: Recommended alternative

https://github.com/notion-enhancer/notion-repackaged

Notion Desktop builds with Notion Enhancer for Windows, MacOS and Linux. Direct port of Notion is also available for Linux.

11 June 2021: End of support

I no longer use either Notion or Linux. Furthermore, recent updates to Notion have made it difficult for me to support all the existing variants (e.g. arm64, enhanced), due to new native modules and incompatibilities with Notion Enhancer. If you would like to maintain this project, please contact me by opening an issue, or through my website.

For Arch Linux users, I recommend using notion-app. For other Linux users, I recommend using the Notion web app. For Notion Enhancer users, its maintainer reports that a Chrome extension may be coming soon. You can also continue using the current latest version indefinitely, as the current hosting solution is free on my end.

Notion for Linux

Native Notion packages for Linux, built from Notion's Windows installer.

To install Notion with Notion Enhancer mods applied, replace notion-desktop with notion-enhanced in the commands below.

Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint

wget https://notion.davidbailey.codes/notion-linux.list
sudo mv notion-linux.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/notion-linux.list
sudo apt update && sudo apt install notion-desktop

Fedora, CentOS

wget https://notion.davidbailey.codes/notion-linux.repo
sudo mv notion-linux.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/notion-linux.repo
sudo dnf install notion-desktop

openSUSE

sudo zypper ar -r https://notion.davidbailey.codes/notion-linux.repo
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys install notion-desktop

Build

Install requirements

  1. Install Node.js, e.g. using NVM:

    nvm install node
  2. Install NPM version 7:

    npm install -g npm@7
  3. Install other packages required for building the app, e.g. using apt:

    sudo apt install p7zip-full imagemagick make g++ fakeroot rpm

    Only Debian-based distributions are officially supported for builds.

Build notion-desktop

notion-desktop is the vanilla Notion package.

To produce an AMD64 build, run the following:

scripts/build.sh        # always run
scripts/package-deb.sh  # run to produce a DEB
scripts/package-rpm.sh  # run to produce an RPM

To produce an ARM64 build, run the following:

scripts/build.sh -b arm64        # always run
scripts/package-deb.sh -b arm64  # run to produce a DEB
scripts/package-rpm.sh -b arm64  # run to produce an RPM

Once complete, you should have DEB and/or RPM packages in the out directory.

Build notion-enhanced

notion-enhanced is the Notion package with Notion Enhancer mods applied.

To produce an AMD64 build, run the following:

scripts/build.sh                           # always run
scripts/enhance.sh                         # always run
scripts/package-deb.sh -n notion-enhanced  # run to produce a DEB
scripts/package-rpm.sh -n notion-enhanced  # run to produce an RPM

To produce an ARM64 build, run the following:

scripts/build.sh -b arm64                           # always run
scripts/enhance.sh -b arm64                         # always run
scripts/package-deb.sh -n notion-enhanced -b arm64  # run to produce a DEB
scripts/package-rpm.sh -n notion-enhanced -b arm64  # run to produce an RPM

Once complete, you should have DEB and/or RPM packages in the out directory.
