Downloads are listed here for all the supported platforms. For most uses cases, you should install a supported version on both client and server.

All the binary downloads are signed with this PGP key: https://xpra.org/gpg.asc. The GPG key fingerprint for the signing key F18AD6BB is C11C 0A4D F702 EDF6 C04F 458C 18AD B31C F18A D6BB.

The beta repositories may not always contain packages.

We provide binaries in the form of packages (RPM and DEB for Linux distributions), disk images (DMG for Mac OSX), installers (PKG for Mac OSX, EXE and MSI for Microsoft Windows)


Microsoft Windows

The windows downloads directory contains:

FormatPurposeDownload LinkGPG Signature
EXEGeneral purpose installerXpra-x86_64_Setup.exeXpra-x86_64_Setup.exe.gpg
MSIalternative installer for unattended installationsXpra-x86_64.msiXpra-x86_64.msi.gpg
ZIPlocal installation without administrative rightsXpra.zipXpra.zip.gpg

The installers are digitally signed with the "xpra" key which has the following thumbprint: F811887E 63CB2CA4 2B77656F 3FE7409D E2916E91, see #1499 for details.

Other types of builds are also available in https://xpra.org/dists/windows/, ie: "Client" only builds without the server components. Both 32-bit and 64-bit builds can be installed concurrently, but the file and URL associations will be removed when either package is uninstalled. (see ticket:2126#comment:5 for details)

The beta builds can be found here: https://xpra.org/beta/windows/.

You can also install xpra using MSYS2 by running pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-python3-xpra. The only downside of using this method is the lack of file association, but you do get more control over which components and dependencies are and aren't installed.



The Mac OSX downloads directory contains:

FormatPurposeDownload LinkGPG Signature
x86_64 DMGDisk ImageXpra.dmgXpra.dmg.gpg
x86_64 PKGPKG InstallerXpra.pkgXpra.pkg.gpg

The beta builds can be found here: https://xpra.org/beta/MacOS.



The Linux repositories are all located here: https://xpra.org/dists/ and the packages are signed with this key: https://xpra.org/gpg.asc. The beta repositories are here: https://xpra.org/beta/.

For step by step instructions on setting up these repositories, follow the repository installation instructions for winswitch and install the "xpra" package instead of "winswitch" (or both).

  • you must install the GPG key to use those repositories
  • the Debian and Ubuntu repositories require the "universe" repository source to be activated
  • the Fedora and CentOS repositories do not require any non-default repositories to be added
  • the beta repositories are supplemental ones so you must also configure the stable repository to use them
  • The instructions for adding the stable repository for Ubuntu Bionic are as follows (for other Ubuntu / Debian distributions - change 'bionic' to whatever codename you are using):
    # see https://askubuntu.com/questions/1203609/how-to-add-xpra-repository-list
    # install https support for apt (which may be installed already):
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
    # add Xpra GPG key
    wget -q https://xpra.org/gpg.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    # add Xpra repository
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://xpra.org/ bionic main"
    # install Xpra package
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install xpra
