Verifying the sha256sum of your distribution package #

We recommend to verify the SHA256 hash after download of your distribution package. Here’s the direct link to that file of the current release (1.92): 1.92/sha256sum.txt. Please notify us in case that you detect any discrepancies.

$ tar xvfz AXPad-1.92-Debian12-amd64.tar.gz
$ cd AXPad-1.92-Debian12-amd64
$ ls
axpad  axpad.1  LICENSE
$ sudo ./
+ mkdir -p /opt/axpad
+ cp LICENSE /opt/axpad/LICENSE
+ mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
+ cp axpad /usr/local/bin/axpad
+ mkdir -p /usr/local/share/man/man1/
+ cp axpad.1 /usr/local/share/man/man1/axpad.1

macOS arm64 .pkg Package #

For macOS arm64 (Apple Silicon M1/M2/M3) the installation is done by invoking the macOS package manager from the macOS GUI.

Licensing #

The recommended way to activate a license is to store the license key with the axpad –license.key invocation. Alternatively you may also create and edit /opt/axpad/license.key directly.

$ sudo axpad --license.key=e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855
