Install from Source

The most generic way is to install it as Python package using PIP. First install Borg using the package of your distribution or via PyPI. The latter needs some additional source packages. Then install Vorta from PyPI. Your local Python version must be >= 3.6.

$ pip3 install vorta

Add Entry to Application Launcher

You can add a .desktop entry to get a link to Vorta in your application launcher, usually ~/.local/share/applications/vorta.desktop. Use the template available here and adjust the Exec and Icon paths if necessary.
