Application installation

The method to install Ramses depends on your operating system; no matter what, it is installed as any other standard application.

As soon as the application is installed and running, go to the settings to configure it.

Linux

On Debian-based distributions, like Ubuntu for example, the easiest way to install the Ramses Client Application is to download and install the .deb package, which will also install all dependencies, using your usual package manager / installer.

There are two different version which depend on the version of openSSL (either 1.0 or 1.1) and the Qt library (either 5.9 or 5.12) available with your distribution; if you have any doubt, the openSSL-1.0_Qt-5.9 version should work on most systems including older ones.

Tip

In case you don’t need a secure connexion to the server (for a local server for example), the version of openSSL does not really matter.

For other distributions or if you have any issues with the .deb package, you can just download and run the .appImage package. There are two versions of the package depending on the version of openSSL (either 1.0 or 1.1) available with your distribution.

Warning

When using the .appImage package, openSSL will not be automatically installed; if you need a secure connexion to the server you will have to install it with your usual package manager.

Windows

There’s no installer for Windows (yet). To install Ramses, you can just unzip the files in a folder of your choice.

If you want Ramses to start with the system, you can just copy a shortcut to Ramses.exe in the startup folder. You can access this startup folder with the shortcut [Win + R] and typing shell:startup.

Mac OS

Ramses is available as a .dmg file. Just open the archive, and drop the Ramses app in your Applications folder (or anywhere else).
