How to install binary version of https://www.yubico.com/support/downloads for Ubuntu. I'm using 14.04 LTS.

This is the official PPA, open a terminal and run

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yubico/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install yubikey-personalization yubikey-personalization-gui

To enable use without sudo (e.g. Google Chrome), update udev rules:

cd /etc/udev/rules.d/
sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Yubico/libu2f-host/master/70-u2f.rules
sudo service udev restart
  • I've also changed the mode, but not sure if it was necessary: ykpersonalize -m6 Jan 12, 2016 at 19:16

    udevadm control --reload-rules is slightly better than restarting udev. Nov 1, 2018 at 20:17
