Class Details

class Flatpak.Installation(**kwargs)
Bases:GObject.Object
Abstract:No
Structure:Flatpak.InstallationClass
classmethod new_for_path(path, user, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a new Flatpak.Installation

Return type:

Flatpak.Installation

Creates a new Flatpak.Installation for the installation at the given path.

classmethod new_system(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a new Flatpak.Installation
Return type:Flatpak.Installation

Creates a new Flatpak.Installation for the default system-wide installation.

classmethod new_system_with_id(id, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a new Flatpak.Installation

Return type:

Flatpak.Installation

Creates a new Flatpak.Installation for the system-wide installation id.

New in version 0.8.

classmethod new_user(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a new Flatpak.Installation
Return type:Flatpak.Installation

Creates a new Flatpak.Installation for the per-user installation.

add_remote(remote, if_needed, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

True if the modifications have been committed successfully

Return type:

bool

Adds a new remote object to the set of remotes. This is similar to Flatpak.Installation.modify_remote() for non-existing remote names. However, if the named remote already exists then instead of modifying it it fails with Flatpak.Error.ALREADY_INSTALLED, or if if_needed is true it silently succeeds without doing anything.

As an exception to the last, if the local config has a filter defined, but the new remote unsets the filter (for example, it comes from an unfiltered .flatpakref via Flatpak.Remote.new_from_file()) the the local remote filter gets reset. This is to allow the setup where there is a default setup of a filtered remote, yet you can still use the standard flatpakref file to get the full contents without getting two remotes.

New in version 1.3.4.

cleanup_local_refs_sync(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:True on success
Return type:bool

Remove all OSTree refs from the local flatpak repository which are not in a deployed state. The next time the underlying OSTree repo is pruned, objects which were attached to that ref will be removed. This is useful if you pulled a flatpak refs using Flatpak.Installation.install_full() and specified Flatpak.InstallFlags.NO_DEPLOY but then decided not to deploy the refs later on and want to remove the local refs to prevent them from taking up disk space. Note that this will not remove the objects referred to by ref from the underlying OSTree repo, you should use Flatpak.Installation.prune_local_repo() to do that.

New in version 0.10.0.

create_monitor(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a new Gio.FileMonitor instance, or None on error
Return type:Gio.FileMonitor

Gets monitor object for the installation. The returned file monitor will emit the Gio.FileMonitor ::changed signal whenever an application or runtime was installed, uninstalled or updated.

drop_caches(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:True on success, False on error
Return type:bool

Drops all internal (in-memory) caches. For instance, this may be needed to pick up new or changed remotes configured outside this installation instance.

a GLib.Bytes containing the flatpak metadata file, or None if an error occurred

Return type:

GLib.Bytes

Obtains the metadata file from a commit.

Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

True, unless an error occurred

download_size:return location for the (maximum) download size
installed_size:return location for the installed size

Return type:

(bool, download_size: int, installed_size: int)

Gets information about the maximum amount of data that needs to be transferred to pull the ref from a remote repository, and about the amount of local disk space that is required to check out this commit.

Note that if there are locally available data that are in the ref, which is common for instance if you’re doing an update then the real download size may be smaller than what is returned here.

NOTE: Since 0.11.4 this information is accessible in Flatpak.RemoteRef, so this function is not very useful anymore.

get_config(key, cancellable)

Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

The ref for the newly installed app or None on failure

Return type:

Flatpak.InstalledRef

This is an old deprecated function, you should use Flatpak.Transaction and Flatpak.Transaction.add_install() instead. It has a lot more interesting features.

Install a new application or runtime.

Note that this function was originally written to always return a Flatpak.InstalledRef. Since 0.9.13, passing Flatpak.InstallFlags.NO_DEPLOY will only pull refs into the local flatpak repository without deploying them, however this function will be unable to provide information on the installed ref, so Flatpak.Error.ONLY_PULLED will be set and the caller must respond accordingly.

Deprecated since version 1.7.0: Use Flatpak.Transaction.add_install() instead.

install_bundle(file, progress, progress_data, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

The ref for the newly installed app or None on failure

Return type:

Flatpak.InstalledRef

This is an old deprecated function, you should use Flatpak.Transaction and Flatpak.Transaction.add_install_bundle() instead. It has a lot more interesting features.

Install an application or runtime from an flatpak bundle file. See flatpak-build-bundle(1) for how to create bundles.

Deprecated since version 1.7.0: Use Flatpak.Transaction.add_install_bundle() instead.

install_full(flags, remote_name, kind, name, arch, branch, subpaths, progress, progress_data, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

The ref for the newly installed app or None on failure

Return type:

Flatpak.InstalledRef

This is an old deprecated function, you should use Flatpak.Transaction and Flatpak.Transaction.add_install() instead. It has a lot more interesting features.

Install a new application or runtime.

Note that this function was originally written to always return a Flatpak.InstalledRef. Since 0.9.13, passing Flatpak.InstallFlags.NO_DEPLOY will only pull refs into the local flatpak repository without deploying them, however this function will be unable to provide information on the installed ref, so Flatpak.Error.ONLY_PULLED will be set and the caller must respond accordingly.

Deprecated since version 1.7.0: Use Flatpak.Transaction.add_install() instead.

install_ref_file(ref_file_data, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a Flatpak.RemoteRef if the remote has been added successfully, None on error.

Return type:

Flatpak.RemoteRef

This is an old deprecated function, you should use Flatpak.Transaction and Flatpak.Transaction.add_install_flatpakref() instead. It has a lot more interesting features.

Creates a remote based on the passed in .flatpakref file contents in ref_file_data and returns the Flatpak.RemoteRef that can be used to install it.

Note, the Flatpak.RemoteRef will not have the commit field set, or other details, to avoid unnecessary roundtrips. If you need that you have to resolve it explicitly with Flatpak.Installation.fetch_remote_ref_sync ().

New in version 0.6.10.

Deprecated since version 1.7.0: Use Flatpak.Transaction.add_install_flatpakref() instead.

launch(name, arch, branch, commit, cancellable)
Parameters:

  • commit (str or None) – the commit of branch to launch
  • cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

True, unless an error occurred

Return type:

bool

Launch an installed application.

You can use Flatpak.Installation.get_installed_ref() or Flatpak.Installation.get_current_installed_app() to find out what builds are available, in order to get a value for commit.

launch_full(flags, name, arch, branch, commit, instance_out, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

True, unless an error occurred

Return type:

bool

Launch an installed application.

You can use Flatpak.Installation.get_installed_ref() or Flatpak.Installation.get_current_installed_app() to find out what builds are available, in order to get a value for commit.

Compared to Flatpak.Installation.launch(), this function returns a Flatpak.Instance that can be used to get information about the running instance. You can also use it to wait for the instance to be done with GLib.child_watch_add() if you pass the Flatpak.LaunchFlags.DO_NOT_REAP flag.

New in version 1.1.

list_installed_refs(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.InstalledRef instances
Return type:[Flatpak.InstalledRef]

Lists the installed references.

list_installed_refs_by_kind(kind, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.InstalledRef instances

Return type:

[Flatpak.InstalledRef]

Lists the installed references of a specific kind.

list_installed_refs_for_update(cancellable)
Parameters:cancellable (Gio.Cancellable or None) – a Gio.Cancellable
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.InstalledRef instances, or None on error
Return type:[Flatpak.InstalledRef]

Lists the installed apps and runtimes that have an update available, either from the configured remote or locally available but not deployed (see Flatpak.Transaction.set_no_deploy()).

This also checks if any of Flatpak.InstalledRef has a missing Flatpak.RelatedRef (which has should-download set to True) or runtime. If so, it adds the ref to the returning GLib.PtrArray to pull in the Flatpak.RelatedRef or runtime again via an update operation in Flatpak.Transaction.

In case more than one app needs an update of the same runtime or extension, this function will return all of those apps.

Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.RelatedRef instances

Return type:

[Flatpak.RelatedRef]

Lists all the locally installed refs from remote_name that are related to ref. These are things that are interesting to install, update, or uninstall together with ref. For instance, locale data or debug information.

This function is similar to Flatpak.Installation.list_remote_related_refs_sync, but instead of looking at what is available on the remote, it only looks at the locally installed refs. This is useful for instance when you’re looking for related refs to uninstall, or when you’re planning to use Flatpak.UpdateFlags.NO_PULL to install previously pulled refs.

New in version 0.6.7.

list_remote_refs_sync(remote_or_uri, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.RemoteRef instances

Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.RemoteRef instances

Return type:

[Flatpak.RemoteRef]

Lists all the applications and runtimes in a remote.

New in version 1.3.3.

Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.RelatedRef instances

Return type:

[Flatpak.RelatedRef]

Lists all the available refs on remote_name that are related to ref, and the subpaths to use. These are things that are interesting to install, update, or uninstall together with ref. For instance, locale data or debug information.

The returned list contains all available related refs, but not every one should always be installed. For example, Flatpak.RelatedRef.should_download() returns True if the reference should be installed/updated with the app, and Flatpak.RelatedRef.should_delete() returns True if it should be uninstalled with the main ref.

The commit property of each Flatpak.RelatedRef is not guaranteed to be non-None.

New in version 0.6.7.

list_unused_refs(arch, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

a GLib.PtrArray of Flatpak.InstalledRef instances

Return type:

Note that this will not remove the objects referred to by ref from the underlying OSTree repo, you should use Flatpak.Installation.prune_local_repo() to do that.

New in version 0.10.0.

remove_remote(name, cancellable)
Parameters:
Raises:

GLib.Error

Returns:

True if the remote has been removed successfully
