In this tutorial, we will cover the installation and configuration of the Ryzom client itself. We will not document how to install dependencies for it can change from a distribution to another.

From the official archive

First, you may need to install wget and 7z. Then, retrieve the compressed Ryzom archive using the following commands:

mkdir -p "$HOME/ryzom"
wget -O "ryzom_live_client_linux.7z" "$(test $(uname -m) = 'x86_64' && echo 64 || echo 32).7z/download"
wget -O "ryzom_live_data.7z" ""
7z x "ryzom_live_client_linux.7z" -o"$HOME/ryzom/"
7z x "ryzom_live_data.7z" -o"$HOME/ryzom/"
rm -f "ryzom_live_client_linux.7z" "ryzom_live_data.7z"

Starting script (optional)

If you do not already have one, create a custom directory where you can store executable files:

mkdir -p "$HOME/bin"
echo '[[ ":$PATH:" == *":$HOME/bin:"* ]] || export PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"' >>"$HOME/.bashrc"
source "$HOME/.bashrc"

Create the $HOME/bin/ryzom file with the following content and change your_account_name_goes_here with your account name.


set -euo pipefail


if [ $# -ge 1 ]; then

hash pass 2>/dev/null && pass -c "$RYZOM_DOMAIN/$ACCOUNT"

Now set the starting script executable:

chmod a+x "$HOME/bin/ryzom"

You can now start Ryzom using the ryzom command. To start Ryzom with another account, you can use the ryzom account_name command.

Password management (optional)

pass can be used to handle your account password. The starting script already handles it providing you store your password under At startup, your password will be in your clipboard for a few seconds so you can simply paste it into the field. Obviously, you can store passwords for multiple accounts using the same pattern.
