GNOME Photos Flatpaks

with 4 comments

I joined the recent buzz around Flatpak manifests in GNOME, and gave the GNOME Photos builds some routine maintenance. The stable build has been updated to the latest 3.22.x point releases; and the nightly, which I had broken, is again tracking Git master.

To install the stable build:

$ flatpak remote-add --from gnome https://sdk.gnome.org/gnome.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak remote-add --from gnome-apps https://sdk.gnome.org/gnome-apps.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak install gnome-apps org.gnome.Photos

To install the nightly:

$ flatpak remote-add --from gnome-nightly https://sdk.gnome.org/gnome-nightly.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak remote-add --from gnome-apps-nightly https://sdk.gnome.org/gnome-apps-nightly.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak install gnome-apps-nightly org.gnome.Photos

They can be run directly from gnome-shell. However, if you have installed both stable and nightly builds, then you can specifically select one by:

$ flatpak run --branch=stable org.gnome.Photos
$ flatpak run --branch=master org.gnome.Photos

  1. Hi Debarshi. I’ve tried it out. But if i’m typing that in the console i’m getting: sascha@sascha-desktop:~/Downloads$ LANG=C flatpak remote-add –from gnome-nightly http://sdk.gnome.org/gnome-nightly.flatpakrepo
    Can’t load file gnome-nightly: No such file or directory
    It’s a Ubuntu 16.10 system.

  2. That’s strange. You should be able to pass a local path to “flatpak remote-add” too.
