So here is a the way to install Popcorn Time in Linux (Ubuntu / Mint / Elementary Os / Kali …. )
First we go to the website and download the linux package : http://popcorntime.ml/downloads/
The current version i am gonna install is 0.3.8-5 so make sure to change what need to be changed in commands if a new version have been released and the version you are installing 32/64 bit
Download Popcorn-Time :
Linux 32 Bit :
Linux 64 Bit :
Go to the path where you have downloaded the tar.xz file and extract the file :
mkdir [PATH : example : ~/Downloads]
tar xf Popcorn-Time-0.3.8-5-Linux-64.tar.xz
remove the compressed file :
rm -r Popcorn-Time-0.3.8-5-Linux-64.tar.xz
install Popcorn Time :
we type “I agree”
remove the Installation Folder :
rm -r Popcorn-Time-0.3.8-5-Linux-64
Popcorn will be installed in : ~/.Popcorn-Time
