How To Install Microsoft Edge on Linux Mint 20

Install Microsoft Edge on Linux Mint 20

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Microsoft Edge on Linux Mint 20. For those of you who didn’t know, Microsoft has released the first test version of Edge for Linux. This default web browser for Windows 10 comes to Linux to give some battle in the browsers. Edge for Linux currently supports Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and OpenSUSE distributions. Developers may install Edge from the Microsoft Edge Insider site or Microsoft’s Linux Software Repository.

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 through the step-by-step installation of the Microsoft Edge browser on a Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • 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 Microsoft Edge on Linux Mint 20 Ulyana

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

sudo apt update

Step 2. Installing Microsoft Edge on Linux Mint 20.

Now we add the Microsoft Edge repo to your system:

curl | gpg --dearmor > microsoft.gpg
sudo install -o root -g root -m 644 microsoft.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-edge-dev.list'
sudo rm microsoft.gpg

After that, run this command to actually install Microsoft Edge:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install microsoft-edge-dev

Step 3. Accessing Microsoft Edge on Linux Mint.

Once successfully installed on your Linux Mint system, launch the browser from your favorite app launcher, or run microsoft-edge-dev from a command prompt.
