Install Slack on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Slack on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Slack, a popular cloud-based messaging platform, has become an indispensable tool for businesses and organizations of all sizes. With its intuitive interface, robust features, and seamless integration capabilities, Slack streamlines team communication, enhances productivity and fosters a collaborative work culture.

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 Slack group collaboration tool 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.


  • 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.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A network connection or internet access.
  • 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.
