Installing Microsoft Edge on Linux

There are two ways to get started with Microsoft Edge on Linux. The simplest approach is to download and install a .deb or .rpm package directly from the Microsoft Edge Insider site – this will configure your system to receive future automatic updates.

If you prefer, you can also install Microsoft Edge from Microsoft’s Linux Software Repository using your distribution’s standard package management tools, by following the instructions below:

Installing on Debian/Ubuntu

To install Microsoft Edge, you’ll first need to set up Microsoft’s repository on your device by running these commands in Terminal:

curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | gpg --dearmor > microsoft.gpg
sudo install -o root -g root -m 644 microsoft.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/edge stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-edge-dev.list'
sudo rm microsoft.gpg

Once this is done, install Microsoft Edge Dev:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install microsoft-edge-dev

Once Microsoft Edge is installed, you can update manually by running sudo apt update, then sudo apt upgrade (to update all packages), or sudo apt install microsoft-edge-dev (to update Microsoft Edge Dev only.)

To uninstall Microsoft Edge, run the following commands in Terminal:

sudo apt remove microsoft-edge-dev
sudo rm -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-edge-dev.list

Installing on Fedora

First, set up Microsoft’s repository:

sudo rpm --import https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://packages.microsoft.com/yumrepos/edge
sudo mv /etc/yum.repos.d/packages.microsoft.com_yumrepos_edge.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/microsoft-edge-dev.repo

Next, install Microsoft Edge: sudo dnf install microsoft-edge-dev

To uninstall, run: sudo dnf remove microsoft-edge-dev

Installing on openSUSE

First, set up Microsoft’s repository:

sudo rpm --import https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc
sudo zypper ar https://packages.microsoft.com/yumrepos/edge microsoft-edge-dev

Next, install Microsoft Edge:
sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper install microsoft-edge-dev

To uninstall, run: sudo zypper remove microsoft-edge-dev
