Fedora 39 Kinoite Standard Notes flatpak from flathub refuses to load

That is so cool. Everything is working out of the box, including standard notes. Not usually an issue for me on Fedora, but immutability certainly makes it difficult. Here is the output:

This is what I needed. Thanks again.

Hello @globetrotterdk ,
Just elaborate here a bit, Silverblue is the Atomic version of Fedora Workstation, Kinoite is the Atomic version of the KDE spin of Fedora Workstation, etc … for the other Fedora Atomic Variants. So the assumption all the Atomic variants are based on Silverblue itself is not correct. Each one derives from whatever Spin of Workstation.

Unfortunately, what is not so cool with Onyx, is the lack of Wayland…

Yeah, that’s one of those “coming soon” things in Budgie.

Please just follow their documentation.

Ublue uses a different form of distribution, thats where the container thing in the command comes from.

And afaik, they use a different signing tool. You need to rebase to the unsigned image, then rebase again to the signed one.

After that you can rebase directly to any other ublue-derived image afaik. No details on the reasoning, somethin in the fedora images is missing, I dont know.

Also as I mentioned, you can for sure install akmods and add those drivers. But really, just use the ublue-main images for the distro variant you already have. They are not very opinionated and dont introduce drastic changes, so it is fine.

FYI - Fedora Onyx is not a UBlue image/distro. It’s an official Fedora Desktop:

There is a lot of stuff getting Wayland support.

  • Cinnamon
  • XFCE (“Vauxite” on ublue)
  • Budgie (“Onyx”)
  • LXQt (“Lazurite” on ublue)
  • Mate

Interesting is that they dont really care about their origins. Many where GNOME protest desktops, so no Distro uses Mutter. Some use wlroots, and no idea what budgie will use in the future.

I hope KDE and GNOME could just fix wlroots, implement their stuff and switch to it. This would give some kind of X.Org, where Desktops would be easier again, and development would have less duplicated effords.

But Cosmic is also really cool tbh, as its written in a memory safe language, saving lots of troubles if errors should occur.

Also for Window Managers, there is a lot going on

  • Wayblue delivers some alpha-level images with more available than Ublue or Fedora
  • Sway (“Sericea”) officially supported.
  • Niri has an official COPR so this could be done
