Stable GNOME Photos Flatpaks moved to Flathub

leave a comment »

Starting from version 3.26, the stable GNOME Photos Flatpaks have been moved to Flathub. They are no longer available from GNOME’s Flatpak repository.

To migrate, first delete the old build:

$ flatpak uninstall org.gnome.Photos/x86_64/stable

Then install it from Flathub:

$ flatpak remote-add --from flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
$ flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Photos

Note that this is only about the stable build. The nightly continues to be available from its existing location in GNOME’s repository. You can keep updating it with:

$ flatpak update --user org.gnome.Photos/x86_64/master

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
