  1. Install the Docker Community Edition for your Linux version. Visit for the "quick & easy install" script. (at least version 19.03.1-ce)
  2. Download the latest .deb, .pacman or .rpm package from GitHub
  3. Double click on the package and install via your distributions "Software Center" or equivalent.
  4. Make sure you look at the caveats below and follow them appropriately

Install from source for other Linux distros

If your Linux distro does not support our .deb, .pacman or .rpm packages you can install from source

via CLI

Make sure you have wget installed.


sudo dpkg -i lando-x64-stable.deb


sudo dnf install lando-x64-stable.rpm


sudo pacman -U lando-x64-stable.pacman

Make sure you look at the caveats below and follow them appropriately as well.



We set docker-ce as a hard dependency for our packages. This means if you have docker installed a different way it is likely installing the package will fail. You may be able to get around this if your package utility allows dependency ignorance

dpkg -i --ignore-depends=docker-ce lando-stable.deb

After installing lando this way, you may need to edit the /var/lib/dpkg/status file and remove docker-ce from the lando package dependency list in order for future apt related commands to work. Great care should be taken while editting this file!!!.

We are currently considering whether to support alternate means of installing Docker such as with moby-engine


Lando is also available on the AUR as lando-git, meaning it's built directly from source.

Additional Setup

Because each Linux distribution handles things differently, these considerations may or may not apply to you:

  • If your distro uses a docker group, make sure your user is a member of it:

    sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

    You will need to log out for this change to take effect. Sometimes a reboot is necessary. See this for more details.

  • If your distro uses SystemD, make sure that both docker.service and docker.socket daemons are running.

  • If you are using Manjaro or another Arch-based distro, you may need to enable the AUR repository for dependencies.
