Eddie cannot be installed on Kubuntu 20.10!

Hi Guys!

I have a new computer and I installed Kubuntu 20.10 on it.

I wanted to install Eddie (with the previous system, ubuntu 18.04, it worked without any problems) but it didn't work.

First I tried the instructions for the terminal at:


wget -qO - https://eddie.website/repository/key
Version: GnuPG v1

after that:

sudo apt-key add
[sudo] Passwort für nooky:  
Warning: apt-key is deprecated. Manage keyring files in trusted.gpg.d
instead (see apt-key(8)).

and then nothing more happened!.

I then have the file


downloaded and installed! it looked like it worked! However, if I want to start it, what can be seen on the screeshots in the attachment opens!

So the window is the familiar but nothing else in it or to click or something!

When starting from the console, this output comes out:

ooky@nooky-lautlos:~$ eddie-ui

How can I completely uninstall Eddie again?

Then how do I get Eddie to run?

Did you pipe wget output to apt-key? Looks like you used the two commands separately.

If you use apt-key add without anything after add, apt-key reads from STDIN, which would explain why nothing was printed after it. Try with the pipe, then continue following procedure, after which you can delete the portable.

You're missing some Mono libraries which would've been installed via APT. So make sure to follow the installation steps above.

It's not installed. Delete the portable directory and it's gone. :)
