[chirp_users] Flatpak

Hi Cinead,
I did that, and after running that command, it came back with an error like no tail.
When I tried to run Chirp, it read something like 
gtk error
A few lines about gtk, but I could not copy it.
My screenreader could not review it.
For DJ's suggestion:
Does  CHIRP run if you issue this command as regular user in a terminal:
flatpak run com.danplanet.chirp
Seemed like it did, but it only read
Chirp As Superuser
and it seemed like the window for chirp was there, or an error window for chirp, but it did not function.

Hi Glen - open a terminal,

    cd /var/log       


    sudo tail -f messages


then try to launch chirp. The error messages should appear in the terminal window. 



cut and paste the error messages into this message and send it back to chirp mailing list in this message.

  Hi All,
  I followed the below to the T, and now Chirp is in accessories, using Ubuntu 20 something, but it does not launch.
  I enter on it but nothing happens, but the panels of programs go away, like the enter on Chirp did something.
  Any ideas?
  Thanks.

  Glenn

  John,


  Here's how to install flatpak. $ just means your using the regular user terminal, 
  if you typed "sudo su" you'd be at the root terminal which is #.


  Download the latest CHIRP flatpak from here:

  https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/
  As of this moment the current version is https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/chirp-daily-20220515.flatpak

  Rest of the work is from the terminal.

  First, install Flatpak:

  $ sudo apt install flatpak

  The other howtos seem to have missed this next step. You need to use
  flatpak to install the “freedesktop” platform. First update flatpak
  and your paths.

  $ flatpak update -v

  This will give you a warning about paths, something like:

  Note that the directories

  '/var/lib/flatpak/exports/share'
  '/home/[username]/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share'

  are not in the search path set by the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment
  variable, so applications installed by Flatpak may not appear on your
  desktop until the session is restarted.

  Since we now have to log out anyway, now might be a good time to make
  sure you are in the dialout group.

  Use  the groups command to list your active groups. If the group
  “dialout” does not appear, add yourself to the group (replace
  [username] with your username):

  $ sudo usermod -aG dialout [username]

  Now restart your session (or computer) and return to the terminal.

  ~$ flatpak update -v
  Looking for updates…
  Nothing to do.

  Don’t worry about installation directory warnings if you haven’t
  installed anything yet. Those will be created later. Important is that
  we got rid of the path warning. Moving on….

  Now you need to get the Freedesktop repository installed:

  $ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
  https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

  and then install the Freedesktop Platform:

  $ flatpak install flathub org.freedesktop.Platform//19.08

  This might take a while its a big (~0.5Gb) download. Grab some coffee
  and make some QSO’s….. Maybe check out my club’s website:
  http://w6ek.org

  Finally we can install Chirp!  (replace .flatpack filename with your
  downloaded version)

  $ flatpak install Downloads/chirp-daily-20220515.flatpak

  You’re done! You can run chirp from your applications menu or from the
  command like like this:

  $ flatpak run com.danplanet.chirp



  My distro has a defective GIMP application so I used flatpak to install the app from there, the only negative is that I cannot type "gmp" from a terminal and have gimp run, I have to use teh menu entry.


  Try it - it's excellent and it's the future of applications in Linux.
