How to Install Another Redis Desktop Manager on Ubuntu


Another Redis Desktop Manager, as its name suggests, is an application you can use to manage Redis. Its advantages over other alternatives are speed and compatibility with Linux, Windows and Mac systems.

In this post you will learn how to install this program on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. This process should also work on other Ubuntu versions.

Installing Another Redis Desktop Manager

First step is to visit this GitHub page and choosing a version you want to download. The latest version appears on the top of the list.

Under latest version, you will find a list of assets. As a Linux user, you need to pick the option with AppImage in it.

At the time of writing, the most recent version is v1.5.2, so the file is called Another-Redis-Desktop-Manager.1.5.2.AppImage. You might see a different version at the time of reading.

Setting Permissions

After you have downloaded the file, you must change its permissions to run Another Redis Desktop Manager.

Open your terminal and navigate to the directory where you downloaded the AppImage file.

cd ~/Downloads/
chmod +x Another-Redis-Desktop-Manager.1.5.2.AppImage

Now you can either double-click the file to start the application or run it from the terminal.

./Another-Redis-Desktop-Manager.1.5.2.AppImage &

Appending & at the end of the command makes it run in the background. This way you can use your terminal for other tasks or close it.

Tip: You might want to create a separate directory for AppImage applications and move Another Redis Desktop Manager in there.

mkdir ~/Applications
mv ./Another-Redis-Desktop-Manager.1.5.2.AppImage ~/Applications/.

Uninstalling Another Redis Desktop Manager

Since it is an AppImage file, it isn’t actually installed on your system. The file contains the complete application with all its dependencies. To uninstall the application, delete the Another-Redis-Desktop-Manager.1.5.2.AppImage file.
