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.

I've created another flatpak packages, this time for XnSketch and XnRetro.

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.
