Using AppImage for Krita and Flatpak for MyPaint on Fedora 25 Workstation Part 1

Krita and MyPaint are two worthy digital painting desktop applications for Linux. If you're running Fedora 25 Workstation, the latest version of Krita is available on the default repositories, while a version of MyPaint is available via RPM Fusion. You also have the option of running Krita via AppImage, while MyPaint's updated release can be installed via a Flatpak command.

Mypaint.org's download page provides a Flatpak reference script for automating the install process. However, although the ref file launched Software Manager on my Fedora 25 machine, installation would not initiate despite having an available Install button. Instead, the flatpak command had to be run manually.


Although Gnome Software will open if you click the Flatpak reference link from MyPaint.org's Download page, the Install button doesn't work.

To install myPaint using Flatpak:

1. Run the following command from the Terminal.

flatpak install --from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mypaint/mypaint/master/flatpak/mypaint-stable.flatpakref


 2. MyPaint is added to your list of Applications and can be launched from its shortcut.



Note: For users running Debian 8 Jessie or Debian 9 Stretch, you can install the flatpak software package using apt or Synaptic Package Manager. Note, however, that MyPaint 1.2.0 is available from Debian's default repositories.
