GNOME project member Abderrahim Kitouni announced yesterday that the latest GNOME 3.30 desktop environment could be downloaded and installed as a Flatpak runtime from the Flathub website to the GNU/Linux distribution.
Kitouni said, “The flatpak story for GNOME 3.30 wasn’t very smooth as we moved away from building the runtimes from gnome-sdk-images to the BuildStream-based gnome-build-meta, and moved from freedestkop-sdk 1.6 to 18.08. The wait is now over as the GNOME 3.30 flatpak runtimes are now available on flathub.”
After the GUADEC 2018 summit, the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment codenamed “Almeria” was officially released on September 5 this year, and some new features were introduced while many components were significantly improved. Currently, GNOME 3.30 has become the default desktop environment for dozens of GNU/Linux distributions including Ubuntu.
If you want to install the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment in a favorite distribution, go to FlatHub and set the system to Flatpaks. Supported distributions include Ubuntu, Fedora, Linux Mint, OpenSuSE, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Arch Linux, Debian GNU/Linux, Gentoo Linux, Solus, Endless OS, Alpine Linux, Mageia, elementary, Raspbian and Pop!_OS.
