Packaging status

Packaging status

Some of the packages are officially maintained while most of them are maintained by the community.

However, at present, CP Editor is not available in many package repositories. Package maintainers can contact us if any help is needed. For example, we may add some scripts in our CI/CD workflow.

Here are a few guidelines to install the packages.


You can use Snapcraft to install cpeditor , which is available on most Linux distros.

There are two channels available: latest/stable and latest/edge.

Due to technical reasons, it was published using classic confinement, so you’ll need the --classic option to install it.

To install the latest stable version: sudo snap install cpeditor --classic

To install the latest alpha version: sudo snap install cpeditor --classic --channel=latest/edge


There are two AUR packages for CP Editor: cpeditor for the stable version and cpeditor-git for the alpha version.

If you have yay installed, you can run yay -S cpeditor to install. If you don’t have yay and don’t know how to install from AUR, you can read how to install yay or the Arch Wiki .

After the installation, you’ll be able to run CP Editor by cpeditor in your terminal or launch from the start menu like other apps.
