  • Instructions for installing ID software on Linux computers

    Show Hide

    In the case of Linux, software installation takes place with the help of an automated script via command line. You can find more information in Ubuntu ID software installation, updating and removal instructions, if necessary.

    Step 1: Download required script.
    You can find it here: https://installer.id.ee/media/install-scripts/install-open-eid.sh

    Step 2: Open the terminal and find the script directory.
    Open the terminal and navigate to the directory where you saved the installation script using the “cd Folder name” command.
    Don’t add quotes! For example, a navigation command might look like this: cd /home/username/Downloads

    Step 3: Run AutoScript.
    To start the script, enter the Terminal command: sh install-open-eid.sh and press  Enter.

    Step 4: Enter user password.
    There’s nothing going on when you write your password – don’t let it get in the way 🙂 When you have entered the password in the correct format, press Enter.

    Step 5: You will see the question “Do you want yo continue? [Y/n]”.
    Agree to continue, enter Y on the keyboard and press Enter.

    Step 6: If the DigiDoc4 client / ID software is installed successfully, the message “Thank you for using Estonia ID card!” Will be displayed on the terminal.
    The terminal window can be closed.
