Hi everyone. I’m new on the world of Linux and I’m studying about different things and one of the is about flatpak.I know that Fedora is pushing the implementation of flatpak and that Fedora has it own repository of flatpak packages. My question is why it is implemented different than flathub repository?. I mean, for example, when I install Gimp from flathub it install
But if you install it from the fedora flatpak repository it only install the
- org.fedoraproject.Platform (That then all the other applications use)
And I don’t understand what is the advantage of do this. Maybe is about don’t have libraries duplicated?
Other question is Why the fedora project has their own flatpak repository and not use flathub from default? It has relation whit the idea of freedom? I mean, to not ship proprietary software on Fedora? And is there any difference that makes it better to use applications from the fedora repository and not from flathub?
And my last question. When you install software from gnome-software it such time recommend install from Fedora(Flatpak) others time it recommend install from Flathub and others time it recommend install from Fedora(rmp). What is the criteria that it has to recommend this options?
