Hello, friends. We already know that Linux is widely used by many different people and this includes musicians. Therefore, today we will show you how to install LMMS on Debian 10 / Ubuntu 20.04

The process of creating music is something we know is not easy. However, every day there are many new tools dedicated to facilitating the process. One of them is LMMS.

LMMS is a digital audio workstation application program. Running on the right hardware, LMMS is capable of producing great compositions using a MIDI keyboard. It is open-source and created in QT so its integration with the desktop is guaranteed.

Some of the features of LMMS are

  • Compose music on Windows, Linux, and macOS
  • Sequence, compose, mix and automate songs in one simple interface
  • Note playback via MIDI or typing keyboard
  • Consolidate instrument tracks using Beat+Bassline Editor

It should be noted that LMMS is a serious and reliable alternative to other proactive solutions, but it is free. They even urge creators to purchase their compositions.

Installing LMMS on Debian 10 | Ubuntu 20.04

LMMS is distributed as packages for almost all Linux distributions including Debian and Ubuntu.

Therefore, LMMS is in the official repositories of both. So open a terminal, and run:

sudo apt install lmms

And just wait for it to download and install.

This method is the most efficient way to have LMMS in our system, but it also has a problem. With this method we will not have the latest stable version available.

To avoid this, LMMS is also distributed in APPImage format which is compatible with any Linux distribution.

If you prefer this method, download it using wget.

wget -c https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/releases/download/v1.2.2/lmms-1.2.2-linux-x86_64.AppImage

Once downloaded, change the permission to run with the following command:

chmod +x *.AppImage

And you can run it by double-clicking on the file or from the terminal:


You will see this:

LMMS on Debian / Ubuntu

So, enjoy it.


Finally, LMMS is a professional application available to everyone on Linux. Especially in distributions as popular as Debian and Ubuntu but thanks to the AppImage format we can have it in any distribution.
