flatpak-make-current(1) Make a specific version of an app current


flatpak make-current [OPTION...] APP BRANCH


Makes a particular branch of an application current. Only the current branch of an app has its exported files (such as desktop files and icons) made visible to the host.

When a new branch is installed it will automatically be made current, so this command is often not needed.

Unless overridden with the --user option, this command creates a system-wide installation.


The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Show help options and exit.


Create a per-user installation.


Create a system-wide installation.


The architecture to install for.

-v, --verbose

Print debug information during command processing.


Print version information and exit.
