Installing a Newer Version than Synaptic Offers

<< < (2/2)

kd4e:
Entered "Flathub" into the duckduckgo-enabled Firefox browser and it's right there.

Of course that only covers what's been added to the Flathub repository.

I'll have to see if there's an electronics/radio related repository that keeps apps not in Flathub up to date.

Thanks!

I tried to add this ...

"sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dansmith/chirp-snapshots"

Last line reads:

"aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Sparky/Sid"

Is there a workaround, please?

Thanks

pavroo:
You can't add ppa, it is for Ubuntu not for Debian.

kd4e:
OK, understood.

One site lists their PPA version as Ubuntu/Debian.

The CHIRP site includes a Flatpak version so I guess that's the best way to get the most-current version?


--- Code ---https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/
--- End code ---


(Does using a Flatpak mean that I have to manually update that app, because it's not in system-wide Repository-based update?)

Thanks
