Installing Flowblade

  1. Installing deb package
  2. Installing Flatpak from Flathub
  3. Installing from your OS repository
  4. Installing using Source Code Archive
  5. Installing using Development Repository Version
  6. Installing with setup.py not supported

Installing deb package

Step 1. Download and install .deb

First download .deb file for Flowblade 2.0 from here.

Double click on .deb file to install it.

On some systems double clicking may not work and you need to install .deb file using terminal:

  • Open terminal in the directory you saved the downloaded .deb file. Give command:

sudo apt install ./flowblade-2.0.0-1_all.deb

Installing Flatpak from Flathub

1. Setup Flatpak and Flathub

There is an official guide here: https://flatpak.org/setup/

2a. Install using Gnome SOFTWARE

If your distribution has Gnome SOFTWARE application available you can install Flowblade with it. NOTE: There can be two versions of Flowblade in Gnome SOFTWARE, Flatpak version has text dl.flathub.org text

2b. Install from commandline

Give these commands in terminal:

flatpak install --from https://flathub.org/repo/appstream/io.github.jliljebl.Flowblade.flatpakref
flatpak run io.github.jliljebl.Flowblade

NOTE: Flatpak releases can sometimes be a bit lagging after other releases

Installing from your OS repository

The easiest way to install Flowblade is using the version in your OS repository. The downside is that the version available may not be the current latest release. Contact your OS to get latest Flowblade included in repositories if not already available.

Ubuntu, Debian and Linux Mint

sudo apt-get install flowblade

Archlinux

Latest release. Visit the AUR page or use terminal command:

yaourt -S flowblade

Git version. Visit the AUR page or use terminal command:

yaourt -S flowblade-git

Installing using Source Code Archive

Flowblade is currently a 100% script application, and all the dependencies should be available in popular distributions, so in most cases it should be possible to install and run Flowblade without compiling anything.

First download tar.gz source archive file from here.

  • Extract archive into a folder of your choosing
  • Install dependencies. See Dependencies doc for more information.
  • If you have Flowblade installed in your system, you probably have the dependencies installed, unless some new ones have been added.
  • Launch by running script .../flowblade-2.0.0/flowblade that was created in the folder where archive was unpacked.
  • Note that if you have Flowblade installed yu will need use full path to repository version or navigate to the folder containing launch script and use command "./flowblade" to launch repository version instead of installed version.

Installing using Development Repository Version

Flowblade is currently a 100% script application, and all the dependencies should be available in popular distributions, so in most cases it should be possible to install and run Flowblade without compiling anything.

Developer version may however be unstable or have new dependencies. If you fail to install developer version, please file a bug in Issues -tab.

  • Install Git in your system (Ubuntu command):
sudo apt-get install git
  • Use Git to download Flowblade into a folder of your choosing by using the git clone command in your terminal:
git clone https://github.com/jliljebl/flowblade.git
  • Install dependencies. See Dependencies doc for more information.
  • If you have Flowblade installed in your system, you probably have the dependencies installed, unless some new ones have been added.
  • Launch by running script .../flowblade-trunk/flowblade that was created in the folder where clone command was done.
  • Note that if you have Flowblade installed you will need use full path to repository version or navigate to the folder containing launch script and use command "./flowblade" to launch repository version instead of installed version

Installing with setup.py not supported

Please note: Using the available setup.py script will probably NOT result in a successful installation, even if dependencies are installed, and may actually break the .deb install if attempted. It is only there to help .deb packaging.
