Q: Running darktable-cltest from a flatpak installation?

Platform: Ubuntu Studio 22.04, AMD Ryzen 5950X, AMD RX 5700 XT.

Since Ubuntu Studio’s version of darktable is several releases behind, I’ve been installing it via flatpak. It works just fine, indeed it works quite well on this machine.

But I haven’t figured out how to run the darktable-cltest executable. I confirmed that the binary is in the flatpak’s bin directory. I have no clue how to launch it from the shell. I tried a couple of things but wound up with complaints about missing libraries and/or modules.

I expect the same is true of darktable-cli, or any other executables packaged with darktable.

Any clues how one can run command line executables from the flatpak? Thanks.

For other commands that require options, flatpak run --command=darktable-cli org.darktable.Darktable --arguments-go-here


Thank you, that’s exactly the clue I needed!
