elementary OS Quick Setup

Follow these simple steps to start using Flatpak

  1. Install Flatpak

    The official Flatpak PPA is the recommended way to install Flatpak. To install it, run the following in the Terminal:

    
          $ sudo apt install software-properties-common --no-install-recommends
          $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
          $ sudo apt update
          $ sudo apt install flatpak
        
  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. Restart

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

    Note: graphical installation of Flatpak apps may not be possible with elementary OS.
