How to install Ring on Ubuntu, Fedora – Skype Alternative

28/12/2020

In this post, I will be showing you how to install Ring on Ubuntu 17.04 and below. Ring is a free and universal communication platform which preserves the users’ privacy and freedoms. Ring is fully distributed, and does not depend on any central infrastructure or enterprise for it to work. Every Ring user is connected to his or her contacts via a fully distributed network.

Also it can be used to send text and make audio/video calls in a more privately secured, and reliable network. It runs on various platforms such as Linux, Mac OS, Windows and also available on Android mobile. Before we proceed on installing Ring on Ubuntu, lets take a quick look at its features.

The systems presented above, other than GNU/Linux, are not advised by the Free Software community, due to a grave ethical flaw
