Install Linux Client

Ubuntu 18.04 (amd64) and Ubuntu 20.04 (amd64)

1. Add the Amazon Workspaces Client repository to your system

Prior to installing the Amazon WorkSpaces client you need to add the repository to your systems respository’s list. To do this follow these commands:

Ubuntu 18.04 (amd64)

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

echo "deb [arch=amd64] bionic main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/amazon-workspaces-clients.list

sudo apt-get update

Ubuntu 20.04 (amd64)

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

echo "deb [arch=amd64] focal main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/amazon-workspaces-clients.list

sudo apt-get update

2. Install Amazon Workspaces

Once the repository has been added to the Ubuntu OS, you can install Amazon Workspaces with the following command.

sudo apt-get install workspacesclient

If you need to download and install the Amazon WorkSpaces Client directly, you can find the download here for Ubuntu 18.04 (amd64), Ubuntu 20.04 (amd64)

Doing this bypasses auto-updates requiring the administrator to manually install each future version.
