Nuvola Adds Three New Scripts: Brain.fm, Focus@Will, and NPR One

Three new scripts were added to the stable Flatpak repository: Brain.fm, Focus@Will, and NPR One.

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

This blog post applies to the genuine flatpak builds of Nuvola. If you use a third-party build, contact your distributor to find out which features are available.

Nuvola 4.11.10

Changes since Nuvola 4.11.0:

  • Installation instructions for Nvidia drivers were updated to reflect the fact that Nvidia Flatpak extensions are now uploaded to Flathub repository instead of GNOME repository.
  • It was found out that the top 1 pixel line of the web view is always erased and replaced by the grey window background color. A workaround was added to mitigate the artifact until a proper solution is found. [GitHub]
