Add Flathub and Nuvola Player Repositories

The Flathub repository provides GNOME Platform runtime, which is used by Nuvola to share common dependencies with other Flatpak apps to reduce disk & memory usage. The Nuvola Player repository contains Nuvola Player Service and individual integration scripts.

Unfortunately, Flatpak support in elementaryOS is incomplete, so you need to use terminal commands.

  1. Launch Terminal application.
  2. Enter following commands:

  flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists --user flathub
  flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists --user nuvola
  flatpak update

Restart your computer

It is necessary to restart your computer to activate new flatpak repositories. Unfortunately, just logging out and logging in is not enough.

Install Nuvola Player Service

Nuvola Player Service is an optional background service that provides integration scripts with global shared resources such as a global configuration storage, global keyboard shortcuts, a HTTP remote control server, and a command-line controller. While this service is optional, the installation is recommended.

In order to install Nuvola Player Service, launch AppCenter, search for Nuvola Player Service and finally click the Install button.

Alternatively, launch Terminal application, type the following command and press the Enter key to install this package.

    flatpak install nuvola eu.tiliado.Nuvola
