Komikku: A Free and Open-Source Manga Reader for Linux

Love reading comic books? There are plenty of comic book readers available for Linux.

But what about something tailored for Japanese comic books (Manga)?

I think I came across the perfect app suitable for reading Manga, organizing them, and downloading them for offline use as well. The app I discovered recently is called Kommiku.

Let me mention the key highlights of this app and help you get started with it on Linux.

Many PDF or E-book readers like Bookworm, Calibre, and Foliate support the Comic book format.

However, Komikku users get more features to have a good experience for reading manga.

However, you need to set up Flatpak and enable Flathub repo on your system.

Once you have Flatpak set up on your system, you can search for it through the software center or install it from your terminal.

Native packages for Komikku are also available for distributions like Arch Linux and Fedora. Here are the commands to get them installed:

For Arch Linux (available in AUR):

yay -Syu komikku

For Fedora (available in official repos):

sudo dnf install komikku

Check out Komikku’s source code and the instructions to build it from the source on its GitLab page. Head to its official webpage to know more about it.


I found Komikku to be very intuitive and clean. Noted that the online servers do not always work, one can expect some hiccups, but managing offline comics and sorting your collection into categories is effortless.

All thanks to Valéry Febvre (developer of Komikku) we have another useful Linux app. You can consider donating to the project if you like the application.

Which comic book reader do you use? Will you give Komikku a try? Kindly let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
