Download the free Linux Counter Machine Update Script

Android app on Google Play
Android app on F-Droid

There is no need to visit this website and log into your account every day in order to update your machines data (Uptime, RAM, etc...). Instead get the free and open source lico-update script here, create a weekly cronjob through a simple command and be sure that your machine is always up to date.


The very new lico-update script for the new RESTful API is, like this website too, maintained on github. So if you encounter any problems or issues with this script, please use the github issuetracker to file a bugreport.



The lico-update.sh script is the new official machine update script for the new RESTful API on linuxcounter.net

  • Update your linuxcounter machines directly via this script without the need for log into your account
  • Automate the machine update by installing a cronjob by invoking a simple command


Download the file "lico-update.sh" from github, move it into your PATH and make it executable:

wget https://github.com/alexloehner/linuxcounter-update-examples/raw/master/_official/lico-update.sh
chmod +x lico-update.sh
sudo mv lico-update.sh /usr/local/bin/lico-update.sh

Or clone the repository in order to be able to contribute to the code, enhance the script, fixing bugs and sending pull requests:

git clone https://github.com/alexloehner/linuxcounter-update-examples.git
cd linuxcounter-update-examples/_official
sudo cp lico-update.sh /usr/local/bin/lico-update.sh


First start the script by using the "-h" parameter to get some help:

lico-update.sh -h

You may use the interactive mode of the script for being guided through the machine registration and sending the data:

lico-update.sh -i
