Flatpak: Possible Use in Mageia Project?

Postby linuxbrad » Nov 3rd, '17, 14:42


I've seen this new technology (or not new...I'm not sure...it appears to be a new name for xdg-app) pop up on various forums. I had a look at their web site (http://flatpak.org/index.html#page-top) but haven't really investigated it with any rigour. It looks like it may have been developed by people associated with Fedora and may be a replacement for RPM, APT, and the like (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatpak).

In any case, has anyone on the Mageia Project looked at this and determined the feasibility of its use here?

Well, flatpak is available as package on Mageia 6. This is also mentioned at http://flatpak.org/getting.html
so you should be able to install apps as mentioned here: http://flatpak.org/apps.html
