Download and Install

Since Displagent is a cross-platform desktop application, you will need to download and install it on your machine. Here is a brief guide on how to do that.

Download Displagent

To download Displagent, please visit the main site's download page and click the download icon that is appropriate for your machine's operating system.

TIP

To confirm that you have downloaded the correct file type for your machine, please look to the file extension reference table below.

Operating SystemFile ExtensionStatus
Windows.exeSupported
Mac OS.dmgComing soon
Linux.AppImageSupported

Raspberry Pi

If you plan to run Displagent on a Raspberry Pi, please see the requirements below.

Architecture

Please install the 64-bit version of Raspberry OS (formerly called Raspbian) on your Raspberry Pi. This is because the .AppImage executable is built on a 64-bit Ubuntu virtual machine.

TIP

If you don't know what the architecture is for your Raspberry Pi, open up a terminal and type uname -m. If you see aarch64, then you know that you are running a 64-bit version of Raspberry OS.

Models

I recommend the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (8 GB).

The Raspberry Pi Model 4 B comes in three different RAM capacities, namely, the 2 GB, the 4 GB, and the 8 GB.

Displagent is confirmed to run extremely well on the 8 GB model, the 4 GB model is yet to be determined, but the 2 GB model has proven insufficient with early users and is therefore not recommended.

Install Displagent

To install Displagent, simply open/run the executable file. Displagent will install itself on your machine relative to your user account, so it is unlikely that you will require admin permissions to install.

TIP

For example, on Windows, the default installation path will be: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Displagent.

AppImage Installation

If you are installing Displagent on a Linux machine (such as a Raspberry Pi), then you may need to do two things:

  1. Right-click the .AppImage file and enable execution permissions. You can also do this from the terminal by running chmod +x Displagent-Setup-linux-arm64.AppImage. See this AppImage guide for an example.
  2. If the .AppImage file will still not execute, your machine may need to have the libfuse2 package installed (AppImages are known to rely on this package). To install, open a terminal and run sudo apt install libfuse2.

Important

If you are running Displagent on a Raspberry Pi, you may need to run step #2.

Signup

When you first signup for Displagent inside the app, you will likely be met with an Accept/Decline popup from the Displagent authentication system. Please click the Accept button to continue with your account creation.

What is this?

Displagent uses a highly-secure, highly-regulated, and well-established third-party authentication system called Auth0. This popup is a mandatory signup requirement from Auth0 when using a desktop app like Displagent, don't let it alarm you.
