How to install Discord on Fedora 27

asked 2018-03-08 10:39:40 -0600

Hi there. I have installed Fedora 27 yesterday and I want to install Discord so I can communicate with my friends. I extracted the tar.gz file but when I (in the terminal) do ./configure it gives me an error saying

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Any help?

Also I noticed some software missing from dnf (such as vlc which I'm pretty sure I remember installing on a previous version of Fedora). Is it incomptibilities with Fedora 27?

Ok so I installed rpmfusion To get rpmfusion put the following in the terminal (Fedora 27 only):

rpm -ivh https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-27.noarch.rpm

rpm -ivh https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-27.noarch.rpm

Next, I did

su
dnf install discord

Now it works... Simpler than expected.

This will install the application, but will lag behind the updates. Discord seems to want to update all the time and won't run without the update, so this might mean installing manually anyways.

You can also install it using flatpak, download it from flathub:

GUI: Click on Discord and it will open with Gnome Software

or CLI::

flatpak install --from https://flathub.org/repo/appstream/com.discordapp.Discord.flatpakref

Consider using snaps, the other ways didn't install updates for me.

sudo dnf install snapd
sudo snap install discord
snap run discord

I then had an updated Discord install that updates on it's own (automatically).

“flatpak update”!

my audio is not detected with the snap package so that may not be a good solution
