Flatpak release

#1

Post by Eonfge » Mon Sep 23, 2019 9:34 am

Hi all,

Today I can announce that I've packaged Zandronum + Doomseeker for Flatpak:
https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.za ... .Zandronum

What does this mean?
  • It means that for every Linux Distribution out there, there is now a simple, one stop installation. This works on Ubuntu, Arch, Fedora, Mint, Suse et. al. It also intergrates fully with any Software Centre.
  • It provides a more modern and robust way of updating and maintaining packages for Linux. This setup allows any package to contain it's own set of dependencies, sidestepping most dependency problems.
  • It's sandboxed and atomic, which means that users have more safety and in both running and updating the application.
Known limitations:
  • It's only the client. Server is not included because Flatpak is less suited for that
  • Auto-migration of Doomseeker can cause a bit of confusing. If Doomseeker can't find the zandronum executable, refer it to /app/bin/zandronum
I hope that many can use and appreciate this. If there are any bugs or requests concerning this package, feel free to report them at Github:

Do you mean that Doomseeker is unable to find zandronum there always or does it only happen if you had prior version of Doomseeker already installed and run at least once? Doomseeker is programmed to look for game executables in its own directory, though it's pretty late in the priority list: after all /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin/, /usr/local/games and etc.

Considering this case on the tracker: https://zandronum.com/tracker/view.php?id=3720
