Index → Install Nuvola Apps Runtime

Install Flatpak

Flatpak is a cross-distribution framework for distribution and running of sandboxed applications. It is available in the repository since Fedora 24.

  • Run dnf install flatpak as root/sudo.
  • Then restart your computer to add Flatpak paths alongside the system ones. Otherwise, you may see strange errors. Unfortunately, just logging out and logging in is not enough.

Install Desktop Portal service

XDG Desktop Portal provides Nuvola Apps with desktop integration. It is available in the repository.

Run dnf install xdg-desktop-portal-gtk xdg-desktop-portal as root/sudo.

Purge Old Nuvola Installations

If you used Nuvola in the past, it is necessary to purge the old installation. Otherwise, compatibility issues may occur. Run following commands in terminal:

sudo apt-get remove nuvolaplayer*
rm -rf ~/.cache/nuvolaplayer3
rm -rf ~/.local/share/nuvolaplayer3
rm -rf ~/.config/nuvolaplayer3
rm -f ~/.local/share/applications/nuvolaplayer3*

Install Nuvola Apps Runtime

Run flatpak install --from (as a regular user without sudo/root rights).
