The Nitrokey App is included in Ubuntu's repositories from Ubuntu 18.04 (codename 'bionic') on. You can just install it via Software Center or by typing the following in a terminal:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nitrokey-app

Unfortunately the App versions in the official Ubuntu repositories are often not up-to-date.

More recent App versions (currently only for Ubuntu <18.04)

To get the most recent Nitrokey App you can add a separate repository at Launchpad which is maintained by Nitrokey. This is not mandatory though.

Please execute the following in a terminal to add the repository and install Nitrokey App:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nitrokey-team/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nitrokey-app

Alternatively, you can use the snap package. Please see here for more information.
