Any easy process to convert .deb/Appimage/snap/flatpak to Click ?
Hello, I think the title says everything.
I am not a developer. However, I remember how it was easy to convert a
.debfile into an
.Appimagefollowing some step by step tutorials.
clickpackages, I feel I just can't. I think I just don't have the level to make it work. Or maybe I missed a very easy tutorial somewhere.
Appimagehas this advantage that even non developers can almost build their app.
So please, do you know if this tutorial exist ? Can we convert a
.debor any other package to
click? My target is to do an app (not a web app).
Please, don't just forward me the UBports documentation : you can easily imagine I have already read pages of it.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
@prog-amateur Probably this is not the answer you are looking for, but you can install .deb in a libertine container. The problem is - most .deb apps aren't convergent and converting them to a .click will not solve this problem, I guess.
@thilov thank you very much. My objective is to convert VLC
Unfortunately, I have tried VLC under libertine, and is almost unusable. And it seems that the hardware acceleration is not available under libertine.
So here, we have many available extensions. My idea is to use a skin to make VLC more user friendly with touch-screens, take the easiest format, and convert into
But, as I am not a developer, I think without an easy to convert tool (meaning, if I have to code a lot), I have not a lot of possibility to succeed.
VLC will still have issues, as it's not using hardware decoding, and likely would still need to run under xmir, depending on what it's actually using to render video.
