List of Apps that fit and function well [Post them here.]

Osmos ($5) by Canadian developer Hemisphere likely would work well

Big Metro also scales properly for screen resolutions smaller even than the Librem 5, but is only built for amd64.

Feel free to demonstrate it working and adapting to the Librem 5 screen. :wink:

Strawberry music player although works in a flatpak the sonic API does not function in the flatpak… BUT I found .deb that does install and the sonic API functions YAY! :partying_face: . The .deb file I installed on byzantium was located here strawberry


Warpinator (flatpak):

This Linux Mint-developed app for transferring files or directories over the local network works well. It’s able to communicate with your network’s other computers running native or flatpak Warpinator, and with your Androids running the ported version from F-Droid.

I’m having issues with pasting screenshots right now, but I’ll update this post with some images when it’s fixed.

See this TUTORIAL.

I use the flatpak of Kotatogram.
I think it’s a source build with a few extra features. Works fine.

Anki (flatpak; some screens require scaling down):

An e-flashcard application, useful for studying any subject, and popular for language study.

(Not the best choice of font colors, and apparently not changeable at present.)

Import your own file, download from numerous available specialty websites; use single words, whole sentences, or any type of study material. Also supports media (images, audio, etc.).

Page through each card in a deck, respond, edit, etc.:

Edit a flashcard:

More info about add-ons.

Generate your own lists of words with this script.

EDIT: Besides vocabulary lists of single foreign words, studying entire sentences of dialog from natural conversation is a great method of building language skills. Foreign films are a great source of spoken dialog, and it’s also possible to download files of subtitles from, e.g. opensubtitles[.]org. Once downloaded and opened with a text editor, the whole sentences can be imported into Anki. But since the subtitle file is full of non-text entries like time-stamps, etc., it’s helpful to extract only the lines that contain the text. See this script for accomplishing that.


Hello, one shall check if KTrip works well on L5. The Windows is adaptive and the app if really useful (and accurate) for public transport. If you wan to test and are in Europe, check first the “Global” Navitia service provider instead of your country :

Thank you !


This seems to pull in a complete KDE environment:

purism@pureos:~$ sudo flatpak install ktrip
Looking for matches…
Found similar ref(s) for ‘ktrip’ in remote ‘flathub’ (system).

screenshot is my most used app :stuck_out_tongue:

Anybody know a soundcloud app for arm64, a bit at a loss that no such thing exists (i mean thats actually working)

I listen to DJ streams that are say 1-4 hours long so i never have to listen to a single ad on soundcloud all free!

Can you clarify? Are you asking if it works, or saying that it does work? I tested it last year while still on amber and if I recall, the graphics had problems. Great if it’s working well now.

I was asking if somebody could test if it works because I think this app is a must have (purely subjective) and it was not listed on this thread.

But as @guru said, it seems that there is an issue during install : please guru, could you tell us if the problem is a compatibility problem or a size issue ? thank you very much

KTrip generally works well (if it does not out of the box, setting a few environment variables should make it work fine (e.g. to enable the Wayland backend, removing the window bar and forcing mobile widgets). I’ve tested it a while ago for LinuxPhoneApps, when I find the time to do so again I’ll augment the linked listing with the necessary details to make it work well.

Regarding the KDE environment: Yes, it pulls that in, it has to - but there are other Plasma Mobile apps that may be worth running (e.g. KDE Itinerary or Kasts) that then reuse the same runtime.

I am not aware of any Soundcloud app for mobile Linux. Maybe using yt-dlp to download the streams you want to listen to and then using Lollypop (or any other file based music player) is an option?

Could you ellaborate how to download streams from soundcloud using yt-dlp? orpoint me to docs?

As far as I know it would involve a) install yt-dlp and then b) run it from the terminal like this
(so just like you would use youtube-dl to download videos) to download the stream. You may need to look into yt-dlp options for getting the output format you want.

@biggaz, I have been unable to download the flatpak for the gnome-kodi-remote, so a new pointer to the tile would be appreciated, thanks

@amarok this seems silly but I can’t figure where you go in the app to get to the login screen in Girrens

Do you not see the same screen as in the post you replied to me from?

I don’t have an account, so I can’t go any deeper than that screen.

I never find the window as to where to put the account I just see the below…
