1. Install the App on Ubuntu Linux
Option 1: From our website
Download .snap file from airtame.com/download
Run command on terminal:
sudo snap install Airtame-3.5.0.snap --dangerous
3.5.0 is an example. Use the corresponding version number found here.
Option 2 - Run command on terminal:
sudo snap install airtame-application
2. Set up the audio on Linux for application version 4.5.0 and higher
4.5.3or higher is able to add audio to screen sharing sessions on systems that run PulseAudio sound server.
In some cases, this will work out of the box, but if you installed the app via Snap Store and would like to access audio streaming, you will need to do the following preparation steps:
1. Append the following lines to
/etc/pulse/default.pa(if not present):
### Allow including a default.pa.d directory, which if present, can be used ### for additional configuration snippets. .nofail .include /etc/pulse/default.pa.d
/etc/pulse/default.pa.d/airtame-streaming.pawith the following content:
load-module module-null-sink sink_name=airtame_streaming_sink sink_properties=device.description=Airtame_Streaming_Sink
load-module module-remap-source master=airtame_streaming_sink.monitor source_name=airtame_streaming_source source_properties=device.description=Airtame_Streaming_Source
snap connect airtame-application:pulseaudio
Setup Audio on Linux for Older Versions
You are welcome to use another 3rd party app but in this guide, we will use Pavucontrol.
Download and Install Pavucontrol.
Go to the Configuration tab.
Select Digital Stereo (HDMI) output (unplugged) or Built-in Audio.
Go to the Output tab.
Make sure HDML/DisplayPort is selected.
Wayland display manager does not seem to support FFMPEG screen recording, therefore the Airtame Application does not support Wayland. When screen sharing with Wayland, the screen appears black with only your cursor displayed (note that this does not apply to window sharing: it works as expected). If you are using Wayland and still would like to share your entire screen, there is a workaround. Start the app from the command line with an additional argument, for example:
