[Solved] Installing flatpak plug-in in the new ubuntu snap store?

The new ubuntu store is now a snap package, how do i go about installing the flatpak plugin?

You still need to follow the instructions from https://flatpak.org/setup/Ubuntu/

the only update is to make sure you open the “Software” not “Ubuntu Software” store as “Ubuntu Software” is the Snap store.

I think what your referring to is; there used to be an apt based software manager and a snap-store in the previous versions. They removed the former now and its purely a snap-store now in 20.04.

I’d like to have my software repos all in one store maybe that’s not possible now because of the snap-store.

You need to install gnome-software.

Correct, my understanding is that you can’t have one store for everything in Ubuntu 20.04.

sudo apt install gnome-software gnome-software-plugin-flatpak
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
snap remove snap-store

restart
