Facebook Messenger for Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Fedora

‘Messenger for Desktop’ is a dedicated application for Facebook Messenger. The app provides a neat and simple user interface to chat and make calls with your friends on Facebook.

The application is developed by independent developers not related to Facebook in any way. They use the Facebook API, which is encrypted, and so your chat and login sessions should be encrypted too.

The application’s user interface is neat and somewhat resembles Skype for Linux with the contacts on the left pane and the conversations on the right pane. Installation is simple, and I will give you a step-by-step guide in the second part of this article. After installation, you need to log in with your Facebook credentials. It has built-in thousands of stickers and lets you send photos and videos to your contacts. It supports voice mail and group chat. There are also several custom themes in place of native user interface if you want.

Facebook Messenger for Linux

Install Facebook Messenger on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Derivatives

Step 1: Download the application from this link. Make sure to see the Linux section where you can find 32-bit and 64-bit DEB files. Don’t download RPM binaries – they are for Fedora and derivatives.

Step 2: By default settings of your browser, the downloaded file should land in the ‘Downloads’ folder.

Step 3: Launch ‘Terminal’ and navigate to the ‘Downloads’ directory using the following command:

Step 4: List the files in the directory.

Step 5: Use the dpkg install command.

If you have downloaded a 32-bit version, you should use that filename accordingly.

Installing Facebook Messenger in Linux Mint

That’s it. You can now launch the program from the ‘Applications.’ Look for ‘Messenger.’ When you start it, the application may prompt you that there is a new version available and if you want to download it. But it is a beta version, so better to ignore it and click ‘Cancel.’

Install Facebook Messenger on Fedora, Mandriva, and Derivatives

Step 1: Download the application from this link. Make sure to see the Linux section where you can find 32-bit and 64-bit RPM files. Don’t download .deb files. They are for Debian based systems.

Step 2: By default settings of your browser, the downloaded file should land in the ‘Downloads’ folder.

Step 3: Launch ‘Terminal’ and navigate to the ‘Downloads’ directory using the following command:

Step 4: List the files in the directory.

Step 5: Login as Super User.

Step 6: Use the DNF command to install the RPM binary. If you are connected to the internet, it will download the dependencies. If you don’t want to go online, simply disconnect the internet to your PC, and it will straight away install the downloaded file.

Thanks for notification. The links are updated.

Am I missing something here? messengerfordesktop-2.0.9-linux-x86_64.rpm installs something called messiggy which simply display a series of astronomical photos. How does that relate to Messenger? I just wasted 10 minutes of my time which I will never see again. Thanks!

HELP please? Just installed Ubuntu on my pc, love it! Anyway I am new to it. (Absolutely thrilled I did it alone, went well!) Anyway here below is what I got. How do I download the needed files, the ones its missing? I appreciate any help you can give me! I need messenger to stay in touch with family. (I live in a very remote area.)
TIA, Linda

10 minutes. I’m on 90! But the app, is probably okay. I just somehow don’t seem to have GTK…..uuugghhhhh nothing is working, I even downloaded it
But to me the time is not wasted. I enjoy this stuff. 😀

Looking for somewhere to notify developers that the darker themes seem to be missing to change the text field darker while making the text itself white. Makes proofreading your messages a bit tricky. Other than that, I’ve used it about 5-10 mins and it seems to do all I’d expect.

I’m having the same problem!

I use Caprine from the snap store. Quick, easy, works out of the box. Looks the same as Facebook messenger too.

sorry, but after install i have:
(messengerfordesktop:80545): Pango-ERROR **: 13:25:26.301: Harfbuzz version too old (1.2.7)

same error here with Fedora 32 (incl. all updates)

Install Facebook Messenger Desktop App In Linux

Last updated April 26, 2015 By Abhishek Prakash 32 Comments

Facebook Messenger has announced the web version of its messaging service recently. This enables you to chat distraction free. While this web version is useful in many ways, one might want to have a dedicated desktop app for Facebook Messenger.

In desktop Linux, you can use Facebook messaging via Pidgin, but it’s not the same experience as using the actual Facebook Messenger. You won’t get the Facebook feel with Pidgin. While it is immaterial to many, some people might want a more ‘Facebook-ish’ app. If you are one of them, I have one such app for you.

Let me mention it first that this is not an official Facebook Messenger app. It’s a third party app where you can log in with your Facebook account and then chat with your friends in a Facebook-like environment. You will understand the meaning of ‘Facebook-like’ environment by looking at the screenshot below:

It looks like Facebook Messenger, isn’t it? So, if this app appeals to you, you might want to give it a try by installing it.

Install Facebook Messenger desktop app in Linux

This Facebook Messenger app is available for all major desktop platform i.e. Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. To download the application, go to the link below:

The downloaded file will be zipped. Extract it. Goo to the extracted folder and based on your system, choose 32 or 64 bit. You’ll see an x-executable file named Messenger.

Normally, you would need to change the permission on this file to make it executable. If you are familiar with basic Linux commands, you can do it in terminal. Else, you can just right click on it to select properties. In here, go to permissions tab and tick the box besides Execute option.

Once you have changed the permission, double click to install and run the app. You should see the messenger app asking for your credentials:

How is this unofficial Facebook Messenger app?

Honestly, it doesn’t offer much except the look and feel of Facebook. You can have the full Facebook messaging experience where you can chat with individuals, in group. But that’s about it. I tried for voice/video call and it did not work in Ubuntu. As far as notification is concerned, you’ll hear a ‘ting’ sound but won’t see the desktop notifications in Ubuntu, and I assume the same for other Linux distributions as well. Good thing is that one can request new features and report bug on the github page.

So altogether, I am not very impressed with the features but that perhaps is just my opinion. Why don’t you give it a try and share your experience with it.

Like what you read? Please share it with others.
