Are you reading the correct page for you operating system? Windows - OSX - Linux

A clean install is a manual procedure that removes the viewer, all cache, configuration files and replaces it with a completely fresh install. If you are doing this as part of a viewer update, then we recommend you follow ALL of the steps in order.

If you are not installing a newer version of Catznip then you should read our Troubleshooting Guide first.

Do NOT attempt to follow these instructions while the viewer is running

Note : Distribution independent. Please read the instructions carefully.
