Pinpoint Flatpak

Pinpoint Flatpak

A while back I made a Pinpoint COPR repo in order to get access to this marvelous tool in Fedora. Well, now I work for Endless and the only way you can run apps on our system is in a Flatpak container. So I whipped up a quick Pinpoint Flatpak in order to give a talk at GUADEC this year.

Flatpak is actually very helpful here, since the libraries required are rapidly becoming antique, and carrying them around on your base system is gross as well as somewhat insecure. There isn’t a GUI to create or open files, and it’s somewhat awkward to use if you’re not already an expert, so I didn’t submit the app to Flathub, however you can easily download and install the bundle locally. I hope the two people for whom this is useful find it as useful as I did to make.
