Linux Mint’s Warpinator Is Now Available as a Flatpak for All Linux Distros

Filed under
Software

Linux Mint project’s lead developer Clement Lefebvre announced today that the Warpinator network transfer tool from the Linux Mint 20 distribution is now available as a Flatpak for all distros.

One of the attractions of the Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” release was Warpinator, a small utility that makes file sharing on the local network a breeze, and it also provides encryption so no one can intercept your network transfers. Warpinator was also recently ported to the LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) 4 operating system.

Warpinator is made by the Linux Mint team for Linux Mint, and, until now, there was no way to install it on other GNU/Linux distributions. But, as of today, Warpinator is available as a Flatpak app that you can install on virtually any Linux distro that supports the Flatpak universal binary format.

Linux Mint teams up with Peppermint OS on a WebApp Manager

  • Linux Mint teams up with Peppermint OS on a WebApp Manager

    In the latest monthly news on the Linux Mint distribution blog, Mint's Clement Lefebvre talks about a new and interesting application being made.

    They're calling it a WebApp Manager, with the idea that it will help you turn your favourite websites / online web applications into standalones as if they were desktop applications. It's an interesting idea, and one attempted a few times. You can already do so yourself with a bit of know-how but it's not always easy and the end result isn't always great. Which is where this new WebApp Manager comes in.

    Rather than entirely reinvent the wheel though, the Mint team is joining hands with another Linux distribution with Peppermint OS as they already have a similar tool called ICE. They're currently looking at the best way they can work together on it all.

    Alongside many bug fixes that were recently backported to Linux Mint 19.3, Linux Mint 20, and LMDE 4, the Linux Mint community updated their Warpinator app to improve network connectivity and the preservation of file permissions. They also announced a new tool spawned from working together with Peppermint OS, Web App Manager.

    WebApp Manager is a utility app created from the collaboration between Linux Mint and Peppermint based on Peppermint’s ICE – an app with which users can turn their favorite apps into standalone web apps and it was first released as early as 2010!
