What works

Syncing, logging in using a phone number, generating codes, decrypting backups.

What does not

The installer does not run and the UI is glitched. 


Installing dotnet45 allows installer to show a window at all. Changing the windows version to Windows 7 or later allows the installer to run.

Installing corefonts fixes the UI glitches.

What was not tested

Authorizing other devices. It should work but is untested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

The exe is installed to '/drive_c/users/<Username>/Local Settings/Application Data/authy-electron/'

'Authy Desktop.exe' calls the updater. With dotnet45, this should not be a problem but I can not confirm that. 'app-1.7.0/Authy Desktop.exe' does not call the updater.

Authy 1.7.0 on Pop!_OS 19.04

Installed winetricks dotnet462, still can't run installer correctly.

wine --version -> wine-4.0 (Ubuntu 4.0-1)

seanmccay@pop-os:~/Downloads$ wine Authy*.exe
0009:err:ole:apartment_getclassobject DllGetClassObject returned error 0x80040111 for dll L"C:\\windows\\system32\\ieframe.dll"

I get a modal with:
Installation has failed
Please re-run this installer as a normal user instead of "Run as Administrator".

winecfg is default running as Windows 7... I suppose I could be missing some packages. I'm 2 days into running Linux and have yet to install anything with Wine other than games in Lutris.

Hello. I tested the installer with a 4.0-1 binary with corefonts as well as dotnet462 and dotnet45. This is not an issue unique to you.

I could not find a fix for wine 4.0-1. I recommend installing either the wine-devel package or the wine-staging package.

I also recommend you install an application called q4wine. It handles wineprefixes for you so you won't have to worry about things installed via winetricks conflicting with each other. It also has some handy features that may or may not come in handy for you.

Thanks for the help! I was able to get it installed with wine-staging. I can see why it has a gold rating. Some of the text is a little off and the navigation arrows are not really available. But it's totally functional otherwise.

I can confirm that installing corefonts did resolve the UI issues.

No problem. I hope you enjoy your time on linux, be it a few days, weeks, months, years, or eternities!
