Most GNU/Linux distributions come with the md5sum utility, installed by default. So this utility is a handy tool for validation of a Trisquel ISO image file in addition to GPG. In fact, many free software distributions like Replicant OS have detailed instructions on how to verify their downloaded files using md5sum.

Unfortunately, Trisquel's relevant wiki page (https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/download-trisquel) does not have instructions for users on validation using the md5sum utility. So this is my humble attempt to document this missing piece.

Upon downloading Trisquel you should find an MD5 and GPG link. 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.md5You 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: OKCongratulations! You can now proceed to install Trisquel.

You may edit the attached preformatted text file and add to the specified wiki page.

Special thanks to Muhammed for the specific format.

Done! Updated Trisquel's wiki page https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/download-trisquel.

SIDENOTE: I know one method to verify md5sum in Windblowzz, but unfortunately it requires to download a proprietary tarball. If any forum member know a libre solution, please post it here or add to the aforesaid wiki page.

Let us liberate those Windblowzz useds from further humiliation!

Glad to hear that SuperTramp83.

[NOTE: TO ANY FORUM MEMBER WHO THINKS I AM **RUDE OR UNPROFESSIONAL** IN NAMING THOSE BIG COPPORATE's BY TWISTING THEIR NAMES]

I have no ethical obligation, respect and honour for them, unless they stop their wicked tactic of keeping millions of people restricted with their so called "Digital handcuffs". 

I will always recall the iThings with this parody; "*I paid*, *I lose*, *I pawn*. But still, *Mac in trash*! (You will get the funny part if you replace each word in * * with iPad, iOS, iPhone and Macintosh respectively.) So be with Swindle and the Need to flex it. (Parody for Netflix)   

People should learn to say "No thanks" when someone offers them these malice devices and services.

If I want to call Microshits Guinblobs like I just did, that should offend no one. And if it does, frankly I don't care. The malicious and unethical business they've been known for decades now deserves no respect at all. I wish them the worst of luck and hope they bankrupt. The world would be a better place without their malware OS.
