The following tutorial has been tested on a clean install of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Please report any installation problem on the developer forum.

Adding Linux packages#

The first step is to add Parrot packages as a trusted source for your apt packages:

$ curl | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/
$ echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/] $(lsb_release -cs) main generic" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ > /dev/null
$ sudo apt update


The server ‘’ is now deprecated. If you previoulsy installed Parrot packages from this server, please migrate to ‘’ using the commands above after deleting the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Install airsdk-cli command line utility#

Once the Parrot package server is added, you can install airsdk-cli, the Parrot AirSDK command line utility. This will also install all required AirSDK build dependencies:

$ sudo apt install parrot-airsdk-cli

You are ready to create your first mission!
