Other Apps to Install

  1. Installed Wire desktop via these instructions
  2. Download and install Signal
  3. Install Ricochet from its website -- not sure the procude here. You can also look in your distro's GUI app store, though check version.
  4. Install Tor Browser (forget how exactly I did this-- maybe Tor Browser Launcher? From POP store?)
  5. To install OnionShare, I followed the "Ubuntu" instructions on their download page and added their PPA. (The version in the POP store was 0.9 -- too old for me.)
  6. Install Chromium via the POP app store if you like.
  7. Install Standard Notes app from their site
