WebCatalog

As mentioned, the application is multiplatform, but in the case of Linux we have two installation methods.

How to install WebCatalog on Linux?

The first of them is from the source code of the application which we must compile in the system to be able to enjoy this application.

For this we must download the source code from the following link.

The other installation method is through AppImage, so our system You must have the ability to install applications using these types of files.

Most current Linux distributions should be able to install these types of files, so this installation method should not represent a problem.

For this we must download the latest stable version of WebCatalog from the following link.

Once the download is done, we must open a terminal in our system and execute the following command with which we will give the necessary execution permissions to the newly downloaded file.

chmod a+x webcatalog*.AppImage

./webcatalog*.AppImage

Once this is done, we may be asked if we want to integrate the application to our system, we have the option to accept or not.

If you chose the option to integrate you can find the application within your application menu which you can execute.

If you chose the option of not integrating you must run the application from the AppImage file from a terminal or by double clicking on it and it will run.

  • It is important to keep the file just downloaded since the application, being in this type of format, runs in a totally isolated way from the system, so everything you need to execute it is inside that file.

The program has two main tabs: one called »Start«, where we can find all the available applications, and another called »Installed» where all the ones we have already installed will appear.
