Repoman can be also be used to add, remove and edit Flatpak Sources starting with Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS. For command-line use of Flatpak the following commands can be used:

This is used to list the remote/sources configured on your system.

This command is used to add a remote/source if it doesn’t exist on your system and in this example the Flathub remove/source is being added.

flatpak remote-delete flathub

If we want to remove a remote/source the following command can be used.

flatpak search inkscape

This command is used to search for a certain package (inkscape in this case) in the coufigured remotes/sources on this system.

flatpak install flathub org.inkscape.Inkscape

Here we are installing inkscape using the Flathub remote/source.

flatpak uninstall org.inkscape.Inkscape

This will remove the inkscape package from this system.

flatpak run org.inkscape.Inkscape

This command will run inkscape once it is installed on the system.
