Installing gh on Linux and FreeBSD

Packages downloaded from or from are considered official binaries. We focus on popular Linux distros and the following CPU architectures: i386, amd64, arm64.

Other sources for installation are community-maintained and thus might lag behind our release schedule.

If none of our official binaries, packages, repositories, nor community sources work for you, we recommend using our Makefile to build gh from source. It's quick and easy.

Official sources

Debian, Ubuntu Linux (apt)

Install (Using apt-key):

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-key C99B11DEB97541F0
sudo apt-add-repository
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gh

Note: If you are behind a firewall, the connection to might fail. In that case, try running sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key C99B11DEB97541F0.

Note: If you get "gpg: failed to start the dirmngr '/usr/bin/dirmngr': No such file or directory" error, try installing the dirmngr package. Run sudo apt-get install dirmngr and repeat the steps above.

Note: most systems will have apt-add-repository already. If you get a command not found error, try running sudo apt install software-properties-common and trying these steps again.

Install (without add-apt-repository, with limited keyring scope):

sudo apt-key --keyring /usr/share/keyrings/githubcli-archive-keyring.gpg adv --keyserver --recv-key C99B11DEB97541F0
echo "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/githubcli-archive-keyring.gpg] $(lsb_release -cs) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/github-cli2.list > /dev/null
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gh


sudo apt update
sudo apt install gh

Fedora, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (dnf)


sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo
sudo dnf install gh


sudo dnf update gh

openSUSE/SUSE Linux (zypper)


sudo zypper addrepo
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper install gh


sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper update gh

Manual installation

openSUSE/SUSE Linux (zypper)

  1. Download the .rpm file from the releases page;
  2. Install the downloaded file: sudo zypper in gh_*_linux_amd64.rpm

Unofficial, Community-supported methods

The core GitHub CLI team does not maintain the following packages or repositories. They are unofficial and we are unable to provide support or guarantees for them. They are linked here as a convenience and their presence does not imply continued oversight from the CLI core team. Users who choose to use them do so at their own risk.

Arch Linux

Arch Linux users can install from the community repo:

sudo pacman -S github-cli

Alternatively, use the unofficial AUR package to build GitHub CLI from source.


Android 7+ users can install via Termux:

pkg install gh

Homebrew (Linuxbrew)

Linuxbrew users can install it as a brew package:

brew install gh


FreeBSD users can install from the ports collection:

cd /usr/ports/devel/gh/ && make install clean

Or via pkg(8):

pkg install gh


Funtoo Linux has an autogenerated github-cli package, located in dev-kit, which can be installed in the following way:

emerge -av github-cli

Upgrading can be done by syncing the repos and then requesting an upgrade:

ego sync
emerge -u github-cli


Gentoo Linux users can install from the main portage tree:

emerge -av github-cli

Upgrading can be done by updating the portage tree and then requesting an upgrade:

emerge --sync
emerge -u github-cli

Kiss Linux

Kiss Linux users can install from the community repos:

kiss b github-cli && kiss i github-cli


Nix/NixOS users can install from nixpkgs:

nix-env -iA

openSUSE Tumbleweed

openSUSE Tumbleweed users can install from the offical distribution repo:

sudo zypper in gh


Many Linux distro users can install using Snapd from the Snap Store or the associated repo

sudo snap install --edge gh && snap connect gh:ssh-keys

Snaps are auto-updated every 6 hours. Snapd is required and is available on a wide range of Linux distros. Find out which distros have Snapd pre-installed and how to install it in the Snapcraft Installation Docs

Note: snap connect gh:ssh-keys is needed for all authentication and SSH needs.
