Contents
There are two ways to install Discord on Debian Linux such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint, MX Linux, POP!OS etc. One is by downloading its DEB  file from the official website and the second one is using SNAP. Here we will show both.
#Ist Method using Deb file
On your Linux mint press, Ctrl+Alt+T to open the command terminal. Alternatively, you can search for it or use the terminal icon given in the taskbar.
 
Before installing some new software, let’s ensure all the existing packages and system repository are up to date-
 
On the offcial website for Discord, visit Download page and then under Linux OS category click on th Downlaod drop down button to select Deb file.

//]]>Download Discord Deb Package

As we have the deb file of this communication platform on our Linux Mint, let’s run the commands to install the same-
As what ever we get from brwoser generally saves in Downoads folder, thus switch to that first.
Install
Install Discord Debian package
 
Now, go Start menu and seach for Discord, as its icon appears, click to launch it.
Installing Discord on Linux Mint 20
 
#2nd Menthod using SNAP
By Default, Snap is not allowed to install on Linux Mint 20, hence we need to first allow it and then enable the same on our system. For that see our article- Enable Snap on Linux mint.
 
Once the Snap is on your system, run the command to download the Discord packages to install on your Linux Mint Desktop PC or laptop system.
After that go to Applications and you will find your chatting software to run.
