NixOS Quick Setup

Follow these simple steps to start using Flatpak

  1. Install Flatpak

    To install Flatpak, set NixOS option services.flatpak.enable to true by putting the following into your /etc/nixos/configuration.nix:

    
          services.flatpak.enable = true;
        

    Then, rebuild and switch to the new configuration with:

    
          $ sudo nixos-rebuild switch
        
  2. 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
        
  3. Ready to go!

    Now all you have to do is install some apps!
