Bug ID: 1098923 Summary: gnome-software does not open flatpakref files Classification: openSUSE Product: openSUSE Distribution Version: Leap 15.0 Hardware: Other OS: Other Status: NEW Severity: Normal Priority: P5 - None Component: GNOME Assignee: email@example.com Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org QA Contact: email@example.com Found By: --- Blocker: ---
It is expected that gnome-software will open flatpakref files downloaded from e.g. flathub, however this is not the case. Per default, flatpakref can only be opened with gedit. However, it is possible to work around:
If you do a "zypper install flatpak" and run "gnome-software --local-filename=someflatpakreffile.flatpakref" it installs perfectly.
It would really improve user friendliness of LEAP if flatpak was supported via gnome-software.
