For Linux/Ubuntu?

I'll move this topic to the feature requests section.

I wish there was a Linux port of Adguard, but I'm not sure if such a thing will come. The Adguard browser extensions seem to be sufficient enough when using a Linux distro.

Maybe one day we'll do it, when we have enough time and people.

Actually, thinking about this some I'd actually like to see a Linux build in the future, just to fill the missing gap and cover the last base (since Windows, Mac, Android and soon iOS will be covered by this). And seeing Stealth Mode (non-browser extension, whenever that'll come) too would be great.

As the data mining and surveillance 'telemetry' anti-features on Windows get worse and worse I will eventually be forced to abandon the platform.

Would be hard to leave behind Adguard however. I would pay for a *nix version.

I also would like to see (WANT) a linux version. just bought a license for 2 mobiles, and 2 computers. working great on mobiles... i've been off of windows for sooo long that i didn't even think of it not being supported.

I too would like to see an AdGuard release for Linux. Seems to be the final major platform to serve after iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.

It'd really be nice, yes. It'd basically be the last major OS to cover (unless you want to cover FreeBSD or port to ARM for Raspberry Pis and whatnot).

The main problem with Linux is there's sooo many different distributions available. It'd make sense to support and release .deb (Debian, Ubuntu/Mint/etc.) packages and .rpm (Fedora, OpenSUSE, etc.) packages along with stable and beta repositories. Basically limit official support to specific major distros (Debian, Fedora and Ubuntu/Mint) whereas all others are considered unofficially supported and experimental. Hopefully in that case Arch Linux would also be considered to be supported officially (the dev team could release and maintain several packages on Arch's AUR, e.g. adguard-stable and adguard-beta).

Porting to ARM would have the benefit of running Adguard on a Raspberry Pi, which could be used to filter ads for everything over your network (e.g. Ad Trap) for cheap. :D

Windows Mobile is also missing and I would say it is also major.

That one's a bit debatable, I'm thinking - there's likely more potential Linux users than Windows Mobile/Phone users. There's just so much uncertainty about Windows Mobile/Phone's future, which is kinda disappointing.

Since on the bugtracker it often says "this can't be done with the Chrome extension, use AdGuard for Windows", a Linux port is definitely necessary.

Well, considering some of the devs working on CoreLibs use, develop on and test it on Linux, AG for Linux is a definite possibility now. No ETA though, since it's still in the early stages and all that.

But there is hope now. :)

I really hope this happens; I switched to Kubuntu a few weeks ago and rather miss using AdGuard. The browser extension will suffice for now.

We have MITM-proxy which can filter and use cosmetic rules for pages.
