  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

I just try to installFlatpak with the help of this tutorial:
But when I enter the line: ***flatpak remote-add --user --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo***
Nothing happened and I think this is not good since from the tutorial, he see things loaded.

Thanks for the help and your time!

Flatpak integration is default in Pop now, so any tutorials on installing it are obsolete (That video is Nov 2019 - before the release of 20.04). However, installing individual programs that are Flatpaks, is a different matter. That can be done either with the command line or Pop-Shop. Flatpak is easy to use on the command line using the flatpak command. That was the only way before System76 added the integration in the shop GUI. For example, to install a flatpak program via terminal, you use flatpak install <name of flatpak package>. To see if you've done any damage by trying to add it again, run flatpak list and we'll see if it is OK.

For further information see the Flatpak help and man page. man flatpak.

Just to clarify, if you install a flatpak from the command line on Pop!_OS and want it to show that it is installed in the Pop!_Shop/allow Pop!_OS to update it, use this command:

flatpak install -y --noninteractive --user flathub <name of flatpak package>
You don't need the -y --noninteractive, but it will answer yes and not ask any questions to install if you do.
The --user is the important part, as Pop!_OS uses /home/username/.local/share/flatpak/ directory.
