Download the Certificate

- As root, copy the certificate file you just downloaded to
/usr/share/ca-certificates/extra. Create this directory if it does not already exist. For example:
sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/ca-certificates/extra # ensure directory exists
sudo cp ~/Downloads/MY_BUBBLE_NAME-ca-cert.crt /usr/share/ca-certificates/extra # copy certificate
MY_BUBBLE_NAME is the name of your Bubble.

Other Linux Distributions
You should be able to connect any kind of Linux system to Bubble. To install the Bubble certificate on any Linux system, the steps would be:
