Installing Geekbench on a Linux machine

Everyone expects their system to run at the best performance level possible but how does one know if that’s actually happening?

That’s where Geekbench comes in.

Geekbench 5 is a cross-platform benchmark that measures your system’s performance with the press of a button( or running commands on Terminal in case of a #Linux System).

If you want to install it on your Linux system, you can follow the steps listed below. The version I’m installing as I’m installing this is 5.4.1. which you would need to replace with the version that’s current when you might get around to installing it.

Step1 : Download the latest version from here.

Step 2: Open the Terminal on your system once the download is complete.

Step 3: Go to the location of the file which can be done with the following command.

cd home/yourusername/Downloads

Step 4: Un-zip the file with the following command keeping in mind to correct the numbers to those of your version. (Note: the ‘L’ for Linux should be in Caps)

tar -zxvf Geekbench-5.4.1-Linux.tar.gz

Step 5: Go to the directory in which the files have been unzipped. if you followed the above steps, you can use the following using your version numbers.

cd Geekbench-5.4.1-Linux

Step 6: Run the Geekbench app using the command below.


And it should run immediately.
