just installed manjaro kde full, i enabled flatpak support in pamac and i can find apps like zoom… but Google Chrome doesnt appear in the pamac interface, it can be found via cli. why?
it’s in aur
That is because it is not in the repo.
It is an unsupported custom package.
This is in the repo
extra/chromium 121.0.6167.85-1 [Installiert]
A web browser built for speed, simplicity, and security
But yall … the question is why does the pamac gui not return the flatpak option for
google-chrome when it is available (and the flatpak plugin is installed and enabled)?
Pamac needs to be restarted enabling flatpak to actually activate it.
But I admit the strangeness - if one search for google chrome in flatpak repo - nothing - but chrome and google on it’s own does return a heap of results including google chrome.
I think it must have something to do with how flathub can be searched -but I really don’t know.
But I’d advise to use the command line for flatpak as using pamac will require credentials - which should not be needed for flatpak.
An issue already exist in on Manjaro Linux Gitlab for this.
after clicking refresh databases in pamac and rebooting the pc, its the same result
