Problem with CentOS7 install

Problem with CentOS7 install. Using the install.py script.
I installed from fresh install from CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveGNOME-1810.iso.
The install script kept stopping when it was checking to see if I had the ius-release.rpm installed. Which was installed installed!

The only was I could get the script to continue was to yum remove ius-release and re-run the install.py file each time the script stoped.
Eventually is installed. However, it broke my Blender install with the version of python3.

I ended up installing on the Cento OS with the setup.py script in the tarball.
python3 setup.py build
python3 setup.py install

This should be a new post, but has anyone here tried to get a flatpak working with Rapid?

I haven’t, its on my list though. I’d be happy to help work on it.

I’m still new to flatpak and I am stumbling around with basic tutorials still.
but this is what I was looking at so far.

1 {
2 “app-id”: “org.flatpak.RapidPhoto”,
3 “runtime”: “org.gnome.Platform”,
4 “runtime-version”: “3.30”,
5 “sdk”: “org.gnome.Sdk”,
6 “modules”: [
7 {
8 “name”: “rapidphotodownload”,
9 “buildsystem”: “simple”,
10 “build-options”: {
11 “build-args”: [
12 “–share=network”
13 ]
14 },
15 “build-commands”: [
16 "python3 setup.py build --build-base app/ ",
17 "python3 setup.py install --root app/ "
18 ],
19 “sources”: [{
20 “type”: “archive”,
21 “path”: “…/rapid-photo-downloader-0.9.14.tar.gz”,
22 “md5”: “7d57fe8cb08a121258976aa0a0d574fb”
23 }]
24 }
25 ]
26 }

command:
flatpak-builder build-dir org.flatpak.RapidPhoto.json --force-clean

I’ve setup a github repository if anyone is interested.
It will be slow progress. I am very new to flatpak dev.

My build fails on GUDev.
I am not too sure what that is right now.
Files over on my git repo

I suggest looking at the README and if need be the install.py script to understand all the requirements (there are a lot) — or else you’ll find it an impossible task.

Sorry I cannot provide more help now as I must finish my dissertation.

For this error you need to ensure gobject-introspection-devel is installed. The precise packages you need are found here and if building from source here . Consider these the minimum packages required. Rapid Photo Downloader has many dependencies, and its dependencies have other dependencies. It’s not easy to package.
