Install Nomacs on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Nomacs on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Nomacs is an open-source image viewer that supports various image formats, including JPEG, PNG, BMP, and RAW image files. It is a lightweight and fast application that offers various image editing features, such as cropping, resizing, and color correction. Nomacs is available for Linux, Windows, and macOS operating systems.

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 Nomacs lightweight and fast image viewer on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Nomacs.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • 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.
