Knossos Installation instructions

GitHub | HLP Thread


Download this installer and run it.

If you're using Windows 8 or later the Windows SmartScreen Filter might complain that it doesn't recognize this file because only a few people have downloaded it, yet. To start the installer, click on "More info" and then on "Run anyway".

Update instructions: After you launch Knossos, it should ask you if you want to update. Just answer "yes" and wait for the process to finish.


Currently only artful (17.10) and newer are supported.

Run these commands in a terminal to install Knossos:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ngld/knossos
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install knossos

Update instructions: The knossos package can be updated like any other package on your system.

Arch Linux

Install the fs2-knossos package from the AUR.
If you don't know how to install AUR packages, the Arch Wiki has a nice manual.

Update instructions: Update the fs2-knossos package with an AUR helper of your choice or build and install the package again.

Mac OS X

Download this DMG file, open it and drag the Knossos icon on the Applications icon. Now Knossos should appear in your list of installed applications and can be run like any other installed program.

Update instructions: Repeat the installation instructions again. When a dialog asks you if you want to replace Knossos, click "yes".
