jammr Flatpak for Linux now available for testing

You can now try installing jammr for Linux as a Flatpak:

https://flathub.org/apps/details/net.jammr.jammr

Information on setting up Flatpak is available here: https://flatpak.org/setup/

jammr has only been available for Ubuntu so far and we don't want to leave out
users of other Linux distributions. Flatpak is a way of publishing applications
so they run on any Linux distribution. Future releases of jammr will only be
available as Flatpaks.

If you use the JACK audio system Flatpak 1.6.1 or later is required.

Linux users, please let us know what you think and whether installing jammr as
a Flatpak worked for you!

I know Ubuntu is not your target distro list, and I won't go off on a tangent on how 20.04 seems to have broken flatpak in the Software Center, but I'll post this as an FYI.

After some finagling with flatpak I was able to install the Jammr flatpak from the command line - never did get it to install from the Software Center. I blame Canonical, not Jammr, for that experience though.

I probably should have used –verbose so I'd have more info for you (perfectly willing to do that if you want) but the (command line) install went without incident and Jammr is running smoothly. I'll install the flatpak on Studio 19.10 a little laer today and give you that info as well.

Thanks, that is very useful info! If the installation experience is worse on Ubuntu with Flatpak then jammr might continue to be available as Ubuntu packages alongside the Flatpak.

I will test Ubuntu 20.04 Flatpak installation before the next release and see if anything can be done.

Update for Ubuntu Studio 19.10. Unfortunately this is the oldest version of Ubuntu I have, and I think by this point Canonical was already busy breaking flatpak installs in the Software Center, so my experience was pretty much the same as 20.04 above. Software Center didn't cooperate even after installing the required flatpak packages for it, so a command line install had to be done. I will say again I am relatively certain this is an Ubuntu issue.

I did do a –verbose this time, and it was absolutely without any incident - no errors, no warnings, and Jammr runs on both my installs… so your flatpak works for both GNOME and KDE… at least on my setup.

Good job, stefanha
