After you install a Flatpak app via sideload then all apps from the Flatpak repo you downloaded it from (flathub.org) will show up in AppCenter so you shouldn't need to use sideload for subsequent apps from the same repo. Personally I prefer installing Flatpak apps on elementary OS if you have the room on your HDD/SSD. The advantages are: When you install ...

You're right, it does look pretty bad. This appears to be some quirk when using the elementary icon theme with Geary. It's possible to set the GTK_THEME to the Adwaita icon theme which looks much better. You can set the theme when running Geary with the following Flatpak command. flatpak run --env=GTK_THEME=Adwaita org.gnome.Geary To avoid the hassle of ...

what I recommend you is to try to do this using command lines. Open your terminal application and execute flatpak update ! without sudo, otherwise you will receive an error message. Another option that works for me in a bit complicated situations is sudo flatpak repair.

edit: Figured it out myself, the solution is to go into System Settings→Applications→Permissions and give Gnome Web access to Home & System folders! Leaving this here in case anyone else has this problem. Well that will work, but it's not safe. This is a web browser, you don't want it to have unlimited system access. The equivalent of ~/.local/share/...

Then the following command to apply the theme to the application ID... For example with LibreOffice flatpak override --user --env=GTK_THEME=Adwaita-dark org.libreoffice.LibreOffice That command ...

You have to add remotes separately for user and system installations. This same thing caused me a bit of confusion. The error message you received indicates that you probably just need to set up a system remote. To add Flathub as a system remote you would use the following command. $ sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists --system flathub \ https://...

It is possible to manage system-wide Flatpaks from within AppCenter. You have to add a system remote to make this functionality available. To add Flathub as a system remote you would use the following command in Terminal. $ sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists --system flathub \ https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo Once a system remote has been ...

It is not currently possible. However, there is ongoing work to support this. I can't give a specific date as to when that feature would be ready, but I would hope it would be complete by the release of elementary OS 6.0

List the installed package. flatpak list I found the same package is installed. Uninstall that package. flatpak uninstall [Application ID] Update flatpak and it success. flatpak ...

@Travis So the conclusion is "No luck either though.". Actually it's my first time when I had update elementary os trouble. I think that elementary os creators should read elementaryos.stackexchange.com from time to time ;). Faltpak in their opinion is "the future for our AppCenter ecosystem".So I try to send them this link of troubles. Not so easy I'm ...
