The A2LN server runs on your Linux computer and is responsible for receiving notifications and displaying them using libnotify.


The easiest way to install the server is to use your package manager. See this issue for the current status of packaging.

Distribution Maintainer
Arch Linux / Manjaro (AUR) patri9ck

Alternatively, you can install it manually:

$ git clone https://github.com/patri9ck/a2ln-server.git
$ cd a2ln-server
# make install

Another way is to save the a2ln script directly from the GitHub repository somewhere under your home directory and then to run it from there.

All required runtime dependencies are listed here.


After installation, you can run the server like this:

$ a2ln <PORT>

Replace <PORT> with the port you want to use. You must use a port higher than 1023 if you are not root.

You probably want to auto-start it. Common options to do so are:
