On a fresh install of Fedora 37 and trying to figure out best way to install element.
They link to a flatpak on their homepage which I tried installing via gnome-software:
The error message sounds like I need to tweak the filter. Rooting around the file system I found what I think is the filter - but it clearly says “don’t touch”:
$ head -2 /usr/share/flatpak/fedora-flathub.filter # Autogenerated, do not edit # See https://pagure.io/fedora-flathub-filter
Reading on the mentioned url I find instructions to git clone some repo and how to use it to create merge requests for new versions on the filter - but poking at
update.py has not changed anything on my system, just in git.
apps.txt in the git repo after running
update.py already seem to mention Element:
[fedora-flathub-filter]$ grep -A5 im.riot.Riot apps.txt [im.riot.Riot] Name: Element Include: Comments: Summary: Create, share, communicate, chat and call securely, and bridge to other apps Homepage: https://element.io/ Links: https://flathub.org/apps/details/im.riot.Riot https://github.com/flathub/im.riot.Riot License: Apache-2.0 Runtime: org.freedesktop.Platform/22.08 Downloads (new last month): 6588 (rank: 147) Fedora Flatpak: no
How do I allow my system to install Element?
