ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors are now available as Flatpak

14 November 2019By Nadya

Great news everyone!

The long-awaited Flatpak for our desktop editors is now available on Flathub. We are coming to more Linux distros!

What is Flatpak and why it’s so cool?

Flatpak (formerly xdg-app) is a young and bright universal packaging format with a decentralized means of distribution, portability, and sandboxing. It helps

  • developers like us easily distribute apps across the Linux universe,
  • users like you effortlessly install the apps on your new favorite distro.

Flatpak is built in some Linux distributions by default. For others, you need to install it manually. You can check how it works with your OS here.

Flathub is a store for getting applications packaged with Flatpak. Its collection of cool apps is constantly growing and we are so proud to finally join it!

How to install ONLYOFFICE?

Piece of cake:

  • Install Flatpak following the instructions on the official site.
  • Get ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors from Flathub.
  • Install it using the install button or the following command:

flatpak install flathub org.onlyoffice.desktopeditors

Go to Flathub
