Try to install a flatpak in kde

I’m trying to install a flatpak from flathub. Discovery is telling flatpak-backend needs to be installed. This is installed but won’t start. It is also not possible to remove it so that i can reinstall it. I hope that someone can tell me what I’m doing wrong.

  • Make sure that flatpak is installed.
  • Ensure you have at least one remote enabled with the command flatpak remotes
  • Check the settings for discover to ensure that flatpak and the appropriate sources are enabled

It could not find plasma-discover-flatpak.

Oops, wrong forum, let me try that again.

EDIT: fixed it. Sorry about that, must be tired today


Just installed flatpak with: sudo pacman -S flatpak and now it will install flatpak’s.

No problem, thank you for you’re reply.

Will the discover app also update the flatpaks or do I have to update that with the flatpak update command?

It will update them as well.

If you want to update manually:
