Debian Quick Setup

Follow these simple steps to start using Flatpak

  1. Install Flatpak

    A flatpak package is available in Debian Stretch and newer. To install it, run the following as root:

    
          # apt install flatpak
        

    For Debian Jessie, a flatpak package is available in the official backports repository.

  2. Install the Software Flatpak plugin

    If you are running GNOME, it is also a good idea to install the Flatpak plugin for GNOME Software. To do this, run:

    
          # apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak
        
  3. Add the Flathub repository

    Flathub is the best place to get Flatpak apps. To enable it, run:

    
          # flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
        
  4. Restart

    To complete setup, restart your system. Now all you have to do is install some apps!
