Where Anywhere download for PC?



I’d like to try installing Anywhere on a Linux (Fedora 25) machine using Wine and see if Anywhere works. Where can I find the Anywhere download file?

Context here: The OP asked for information about downloading Anywhere to run on a RedHat build of Linux, running Wine. Above I’ve provided the links.

Do note:

  1. Such a configuration may work, or it may not, but it is EXPLICITLY NOT SUPPORTED.
  2. Why wouldn’t the OP just use the Linux version of Anywhere? This is because there are different versions of Linux. Republic Anywhere is built for Debian Linux based builds. The OP asks about a RedHat based Linux build.

Finally, the OP could also try Alien. Alien converts install packages from one type to another. Not all apps work after conversion and again, if it did this would be an UNSUPPORTED configuration. More information on Alien here: https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/how-to-convert-packages-between-deb-and-rpm/


Hi @timu.em9asm!

First, please join the Anywhere Beta group. You can find instructions about joining and downloading Anywhere here: How to Install Republic Anywhere on Linux – Republic Help



Will try Alien. What is the exact complete file name to use to download the Debian version? Having trouble with the “main main” or “stable stable”.

-----Below is command for Debian-----
sudo sh -c 'echo “deb [arch=amd64] https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.republicwireless.com/public/apps/anywhere/debian main main” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/republicanywhere.list’
Note: If you were part of the initial Anywhere BETA, replace “main main” in the source line above with “stable stable”.


sudo sh -c ‘echo “deb [arch=amd64] https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.republicwireless.com/public/apps/anywhere/debian main main” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/republicanywhere.list’

sudo sh -c ‘echo “deb [arch=amd64] https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.republicwireless.com/public/apps/anywhere/debian stable stable” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/republicanywhere.list’


Thanks for commands but I need an exact file name to download to use with “wget” and then with alien. Need to know values for “main main” (or “stable stable”).

https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.republicwireless.com/public/apps/anywhere/debian main main” becomes something like

Need to know values for v, w, x, y, z and if this file name is correct.


Requisite disclaimer first: The Linux app is currently in beta for Debian-based systems, specifically Ubuntu. If you want to repackage it for any other distro for your own use please feel free, but understand that it’s not supported.

Now, the link:

Replace “main” with “stable” if you’re in the beta group.


Thanks ryan_m. I got the file and converted to rpm but got the following error message. ffmpeg is installed. This debug is beyond me so giving up since it’s unsupported on Fedora (redhat).

rpm --install republicanywhere-1.0.2-1.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libffmpeg.so()(64bit) is needed by republicanywhere-1.0.2-1.x86_64

It looks like ffmpeg isn’t installed, although that might be misleading.


Has anyone found a solution w.r.t. ffmpeg? I’m having the same problem…


Hi @jeffreyb.k7xq95

I would encourage you to begin a new thread or topic. There is nothing wrong with posting here, but the thread is 2 months old and RWA has been making improvements since then.

If you are unclear as to how that is done, please refer to this document.

If it’s exactly the same problem, there’s no harm in posting here so the context is all in one place.


I have ra 1.4.8 running on a fedora 26 virtual machine.

Rather than try to convert the .deb package, I extracted the .deb and then the data.tar.xz
I copied the sym link from the extracted /bin folder to /usr/bin, the .desktop file to /usr/share/applications and the entire republicanywhere folder to /usr/share.

I started republicanywhere in terminal and got an error referring to missing libXss.so.1.
This was resolved by installing libXScrnSaver-1.2.2-10.fc24x86_64.rpm.

If you close the main window, to reopen ra you will need to right click the tiny dark notification icon that shows up in the lower left corner of the desktop.

I just wanted to post an update here for anyone that lands on this thread. If you follow the steps I put together you can build your own RPM or just download the one I have shared. This would be preferential over running Republic Anywhere in WINE.
