The easiest way to get Mesmerize is through the Snap Store
Command line snap installation:
sudo snap install mesmerize
After installation simply run
mesmerize in the terminal and the application will launch in ~10-30 seconds.
Make sure you have
snapd installed, which is required for running snap apps.
Ubuntu 16.04 and later usually come pre-installed with snapd.
You should be able to install
snapd through apt for most Debian based distros:
sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd
snapd on Fedora:
sudo dnf install snapd
snapd on other distros please see: https://docs.snapcraft.io/installing-snapd
If you have trouble installing Mesmerize via snap you might need to install core18 first:
sudo snap install core18
You might get the following warnings when you launch the snap, this is normal. Just be patient and wait a few minutes:
