Notes for GNU/Linux users
Most distributions carry FreeCAD in their official repositories, however, if the distribution doesn't follow a rolling release model the version they provide might be outdated. Instead you can download the AppImage above, mark it as executable and launch it without installation.
Please see the Installing on Linux page for more installation options, including daily packages for Ubuntu and derivatives.
A portable version that doesn't need installation can be achieved by starting FreeCAD with these commands: introduced in version 0.19
cd path/to/directory_containing_AppImage/ chmod +x ./FreeCAD_0.19-23756-Linux-Conda_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage HOME="$PWD/Settings" FREECAD_USER_HOME="$PWD/Settings" ./FreeCAD_0.19-23756-Linux-Conda_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage
More information about FreeCAD's environment variables can be found on the configuration page.
