Nuvola 4.21 brings Anghami, adds official support for Linux Mint, Cinnamon and Mate

Another release of Nuvola Player is out in the wild. Version 4.21 introduces new services Anghami, updates Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Cloud Player, Audible, Primephonic, and Qobuz. Linux Mint, Cinnamon and Mate are now officially supported.

To install Nuvola, follow installation instructions at the Nuvola Apps Repository. To update Nuvola, run flatpak update --system && flatpak update --user in terminal (as a regular user, not root/sudo), or use a package manager that supports Flatpak (e.g., a recent GNOME Software application with the Flatpak plugin, KDE Discover or elementaryOS AppCenter)

What’s New for Users

New script: Anghami

Maintainer: Jiří Janoušek • Flatpak packageSource code

Anghami is the first legal music streaming platform and digital distribution company in the Arab world. It launched in November 2011 in Lebanon, providing unlimited Arabic and international music to stream and download for offline mode. It is designed for the Middle East and North Africa to provide the largest music catalog of licensed content from the major Arabic labels such as Melody, Mazzika, Platinum Records and many other independent labels, in addition to international majors labels such as Sony, Universal and Warner Music Group.

Official support for Linux Mint, Cinnamon and Mate

Nuvola uses Flatpak packages, which should run on every Linux distribution. What does the official support mean, then? It means the first-tier support:

  • You are provided with detailed installation instructions that point you to unexpected issues. For example, Linux Mint Software Manager shows a misleading error message, “The Flatpak repo you are trying to add already exists.”, when you add Nuvola flatpak repository. It seems to check the repository's presence twice: Once before installation and then again after installation, which obviously leads to the error message.
  • I have Linux Mint installed in GNOME Boxes to test distro-specific issues if there are any.
  • You are provided with detailed documentation about integration features in Cinnamon and Mate.
  • I have installed a distribution with Cinnamon/Mate to test environment-specific integration issues.
