Currently the Popcorn-time tar.gz available on the site is version 3.2 I have followed a few guides on here, youtube.

there is only 4 files located in the tar.gz


I followed askubuntu/questions/675526/ and /25961/

and a couple half witted youtube videos.

I did

I navigated to the download folder with cd then typed

tar xvzf Popcorn-Time-linux32.tar.gz


then got the following error

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Based on the file found here:


The commands for this are ...

tar xvzf Popcorn-Time-linux32.tar.gz

No need to "configure" anything; you get the software in such a manner you can use it immediately.

If you want a more Debian method; there is a PPA:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/popcorntime
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install popcorn-time

This will have you install the latest version (currently seems to be 0.3.2)
