Additional Notes

  • Republic Anywhere for Linux is a BETA version, but you don't have to be part of the initial Anywhere BETA in order to use the Linux app.
  • Please ensure that the devices you are attempting to install it on meet the minimum system requirements.
  • Our Republic Anywhere app for Linux is used by many on our development team and among our members. However, as the Linux app is considered a BETA, it's not supported in the same way as other versions of the app. If you experience issues, or want to ask for help, members help one another in our Community.
