Flatpak-builder - error: can't find autogen

Hi, I’m trying to create my first flatpak for my Python application.

I’ve used flatpak-pip-generator to generate a json file but it’s the flatpak-builder part I’m stuck on.

When I use flatpak-builder (the flatpak version), I get this error:

Can’t find autogen, autogen.sh or bootstrap

What does this mean and how can I get around it?


I’ll take a guess given the lack of information. You haven’t set buildsystem for the module.

Yes, I was missing:

“buildsystem”: “simple”

(Json format)
