How To Install Gitkraken on Debian 11

Install Gitkraken on Debian 11

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Gitkraken on Debian 11. For those of you who didn’t know, GitKraken is a popular Git client that provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for managing and interacting with Git repositories. GitKraken is designed to simplify the Git workflow by providing a streamlined interface that allows users to easily manage their repositories and collaborate with team members.

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 Gitkraken Git client on a Debian 11 (Bullseye).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Debian 11.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Gitkraken.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Gitkraken on Debian 11 Bullseye

Step 1. Before we install any software, it’s important to make sure your system is up to date by running the following apt commands in the terminal:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install dirmngr ca-certificates software-properties-common gnupg gnupg2 apt-transport-https curl

Step 2. Installing Gitkraken on Debian 11.

By default, Gitkraken is not available on the Debian 11 base repository. So, now run the following command below to download the latest version of the Gitkraken package to your Debian system:


After the package is downloaded, install it using the following command below:

sudo dpkg -i gitkraken-amd64.deb

If there are any missing dependencies, the installation process will fail. In that case, you can run the following command to install the missing dependencies:

sudo apt-get -f install

Step 3. Accessing Gitkraken on Debian Linux.

Once successfully installed, fonts will be available in most applications now, but you can confirm by launching the fonts application located in Activities -> Show Applications -> Gitkraken.
