Blender and Flatpak

Edit on 2016-09-13: I have changed things a bit and this article is now obsolete.

I recently wrote about having made an XDG App build of Blender.

Since then, XDG App got renamed to Flatpak.

As the command-line tool was also renamed, I figured I'd write a new post with updated instructions.

So first, install the runtime:

$ wget
$ flatpak --user remote-add --gpg-import=./gnome-sdk.gpg gnome
$ flatpak --user install gnome org.freedesktop.Platform 1.4

Next, install Blender from my repository:

$ flatpak --user remote-add --no-gpg-verify bochecha
$ flatpak --user install bochecha

At this point, you should be able to run Blender from the command line:

$ flatpak run

It should also work if you try running it from the GNOME Shell application picker.

As before, do let me know how it works for you, and especially if it doesn't.
