Subject description: Let's install PulseEffects using Flatpak

Installing PulseEffects to learn how to use flatpak.

Let's say you have flatpak installed from repositories. Ubuntu Bionic has it, so do a search with apt-cache search flatpak for 17.04, 17.10 (Dog users).

Then copy/paste following 2 commands :

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

flatpak install flathub com.github.wwmm.pulseeffects

Keep using your terminal.

Now do :
flatpak run com.github.wwmm.pulseeffects

Above is how you launch PulseEffects.

The fisrt time i used PulseEffects, i was listening to music with Tunapie and Audacious. I had to do a change in settings, changing PulseAudio for sndio in Audacious(?).

To uninstall :
flatpak uninstall com.github.wwmm.pulseeffects

My review of PulseEffects : flatpak installation ok. Satisfaction : none. I was unable to use it for all intents and purposes.

If you are new to Linux, Flatpak is, with Snap, a package format that can be installed on every OS.

More on flatpak:

From a downloaded flatpakref file, use terminal to install and launch a flatpak app.

Here's how :

Suppose i am interested by Gydl (Gui for youtube-dl).
I go here to view which apps are available as flatpak : https://www.flathub.org/apps/
I click on Gydl and save file.
Then i open a terminal where the file is (download folder).
I run this command :
flatpak install com.github.JannikHv.Gydl.flatpakref
To launch it when installation is done, i do :
flatpak run com.github.JannikHv.Gydl

flatpak list to see what i have as flatpak apps.

The GUI way is to install gnome-software. It is good if you run a Gnome installation. Not so if you run a minimal installation, such as Dog.
