Download Trisquel

Trisquel's download page offers a few different options. Here's how to choose.

Which edition should I choose?

  • Trisquel: for home and office use
  • Trisquel Mini: for older computer hardware
  • Triskel: Excellent for customizing the design and look in fine detail
  • Trisquel Sugar TOAST: for schools and learning environments
  • NetInstall: for servers and custom configurations (advanced users)

Should I choose 32-bit or 64-bit?

Almost all recent computers contain 64-bit processors.

If you're not sure whether your computer supports the 64-bit version, ask the community. Alternatively you can download the 32-bit version; it works on all Intel/AMD processors.

Verifying Trisquel

It is important to verify the integrity of the ISO image file to ensure the download was successful and not corrupted or tampered with.

Upon downloading Trisquel you should find an MD5 and GPG link.

1. Verifying the ISO image file using GPG

It is recommended that you use GPG to verify the integrity and authenticity of the ISO. Download the GPG signature by:

  • right-clicking the *.asc file,
  • clicking Save Link As (or similar, depending on what web browser you're using), and
  • saving the file in the same folder that you saved the ISO or torrent file.

GNU/Linux users

Once your ISO file has downloaded, open your Terminal program and run:

sudo apt-get install gnupg
gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 0xE6C27099CA21965B734AEA31B4EFB9F38D8AEBF1 0x60364C9869F92450421F0C22B138CA450C05112F

Then cd to the directory that you downloaded the files to. For example, if you downloaded the files to your Downloads directory then type:

cd Downloads
gpg --verify trisquel_7.0_amd64.iso.asc

You need to replace trisquel_7.0_amd64.iso.asc with the name of the *.asc file that you downloaded, depending on what edition you selected.

If all went well then you should receive the following output:

gpg: Signature made Mon 03 Nov 2014 04:31:46 AEST using DSA key ID 8D8AEBF1
gpg: Good signature from "Trisquel GNU/Linux (Trisquel GNU/Linux signing key)"
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: E6C2 7099 CA21 965B 734A  EA31 B4EF B9F3 8D8A EBF1

The second line says that the verification was successful, which means you have authenticated the Trisquel ISO image.

If security is especially important you should consider using the Web of Trust to confirm the authenticity of the download.

Windows users

Download GPG4Win, a free software project to bring the GPG Tools to the Windows platform: https://gpg4win.org/download.html

Open the command prompt. On Windows 7, open the start menu, and start typing to search "command prompt".

Now type

"C:\Program Files\Gnu\GnuPg\gpg.exe" --keyserver x-hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 0xE6C27099CA21965B734AEA31B4EFB9F38D8AEBF1
CD C:\Users\User-Name\Downloads 
"C:\Program Files\Gnu\GnuPg\gpg.exe" --verify trisquel_7.0_amd64.iso.asc

You should get:

gpg: Signature made Mon 03 Nov 2014 04:31:46 AEST using DSA key ID 8D8AEBF1
gpg: Good signature from "Trisquel GNU/Linux (Trisquel GNU/Linux signing key)"
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: E6C2 7099 CA21 965B 734A  EA31 B4EF B9F3 8D8A EBF1

2. Verifying the ISO image file using MD5

It is recommended that you use MD5 to verify the ISO file is not corrupted or tampered with. Download the md5 file by:

  • right-clicking the *.md5 file,
  • clicking Save Link As (or similar, depending on what web browser you're using), and
  • saving the file in the same folder that you saved the ISO or torrent file.

GNU/Linux users

Open your Terminal program and cd to the directory that you downloaded the files to. For example, if you downloaded the files to your Downloads directory then type:

cd Downloads
md5sum -c trisquel_7.0_amd64.iso.md5

You need to replace trisquel_7.0_amd64.iso.md5 with the name of the *.md5 file that you downloaded, depending on what edition you selected.

If all went well then you should receive the following output:

trisquel_7.0_amd64.iso: OK

Indicating the downloaded ISO image file has passed MD5SUM test.

Congratulations! You can now proceed to install Trisquel.
