I am in the process of submitting them to the Flathub repo.
Cool, thanks for the initiative.
Get the bugs fixed, THEN start adding features. It sucks, but someone has to do it.

FYI: XnViewMP and XnConvert are now available on Flathub. Not up on the website yet, but can be installed already via console.

The same applies to XnSketch and XnRetro as well.
https://github.com/flathub?q=xnview

Code: Select all

$ flatpak remote-ls | grep 'xnview' 
com.xnview.XnConvert	flathub
com.xnview.XnRetro	flathub
com.xnview.XnSketch	flathub
com.xnview.XnViewMP	flathub
I wanted to announce this as soon as these applications appear on the Flathub website, but since you've already mentioned it, it doesn't make sense to wait any longer.

So, all you have to do is:

1. Install flatpak
https://flatpak.org/setup/

2. Add Flathub repo
http://docs.flatpak.org/en/latest/using ... d-a-remote

3. Install app you want

Code: Select all

flatpak install flathub com.xnview.XnViewMP

Code: Select all

flatpak install flathub com.xnview.XnConvert

Code: Select all

flatpak install flathub com.xnview.XnSketch

Code: Select all

flatpak install flathub com.xnview.XnRetro
You can use GNOME Software, Apper (originally named KPackageKit), Plasma Discover or any other PackageKit frontend for that as well.

One thing I'm missing is a .desktop file on Gnome. I can't find the program on the activities view, I have to launch XnConvert via console.

Sorry, I forgot about renaming desktop file, so it was not exported on host. This issue has been fixed today.

Wowww thanks a LOT for this (I had problems with XnRetro as it was 32bit and was never able to make it work properly)
Just installed the flatpak of it today and it works!
:D :D :D

I have a question, is it normal that XnRetro opens as "Super User"?

In all case Thanks again as i can play now :D

Yeah, there was a problem with missing dependencies. Fortunately, in Flatpak it is possible to bundle all necessary libraries. That's what I actually did.

In fact, it doesn't run as superuser. Unfortunately, this is a MATE/marco issue (other window managers may be affected as well).

Thanks for your fast answer, I like MATE, so it's all OK ;)
Thanks again, have a nice day.
