Portable Linux binaries


Current application version: 2.12.1 (Web UI 2.12.0)

Note: the ARM binary is compatible with ARMv7 and newer architectures only.

Older versions can be downloaded from the build archive.


Unpack the downloaded archive and run the following terminal commands inside the extracted directory:

Initial configuration wizard

./airdcppd --configure

Launch normally


Updating to a new version

The application can be updated in the same way as it was originally installed, just by replacing the old files with the latest ones from the archive. Your existing configuration files will remain intact.

If you still want to back up your existing configuration before the update, please read the configuration directory docs.

Cross-compiling for other architectures

If you want to cross-compile your own portable binaries for a custom architecture, see the compiling instructions for Buildroot.

Migration from non-portable builds

Portable builds will save all settings under the application directory by default, while non-portable versions generally save settings in the user’s home directory.

To make the application use your existing settings directory:

  1. Rename dcppboot.xml to dcppboot.xml.user
  2. Open the file and change the ConfigPath tag to <ConfigPath>%[HOME]/.airdc++/</ConfigPath>

If you want to have the settings inside the application directory instead, you may create a directory named config and move your settings there.
