In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Discord on openSUSE. Discord, the popular communication platform favored by gamers and communities worldwide, has become an essential tool for staying connected. With its user-friendly interface, robust voice and text chat features, and extensive customization options, Discord has garnered a massive following.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo’ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Discord popular voice, video, and text communication on openSUSE.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: openSUSE (Leap or Tumbleweed)
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. openSUSE provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • You’ll need an active internet connection to download Bitwarden and its dependencies.
  • You’ll need administrative (root) access or a user account with sudo privileges.

Install Discord on openSUSE

Step 1. Before we proceed, it’s always a good idea to refresh the package repositories to ensure you have access to the latest available packages. Open a terminal and run the following command:

sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper update

Step 2. Installing Discord on openSUSE.

  • Method 1: Install Discord via openSUSE Repositories

One of the easiest ways to install Discord on openSUSE is through the official repositories. This method ensures that you get the latest stable version of Discord and that it integrates seamlessly with your system.

With the repositories updated, you can now install the Discord package using the following command:

sudo zypper install discord

Zypper will prompt you to confirm the installation. Review the package details and press y to proceed.

After the installation is complete, you can verify the installed version of Discord by running:

discord --version

If the installation was successful, you should see the Discord version number displayed in the terminal.

  • Method 2: Install Discord via Snap Package

If you prefer a more up-to-date version of Discord or encounter issues with the repository method, you can try installing Discord as a Snap package. Snaps are self-contained software packages that work across various Linux distributions, ensuring a consistent experience.

Before you can install Discord as a Snap, you need to enable the Snap package manager on your openSUSE system. Follow these steps:

sudo zypper addrepo --refresh snappy

Import the repository key and update the package cache:

sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
sudo zypper dup --from snappy

Install the snapd package:

sudo zypper install snapd

Enable and start the snapd service:

sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

With Snap enabled, you can now install the Discord Snap package by running:

sudo snap install discord

Step 3. Launch Discord on openSUSE.

After the installation is complete, you can launch Discord using the following command:

snap run discord

Alternatively, you can search for the Discord icon in your desktop environment’s application menu and launch it from there.
