TntConnect flatpak package
Filed under: ,

This flatpak package allows to run TntConnect on Linux.

It got created with consent from TntWare. This is not an official TntWare package. TntWare doesn’t officially support TntConnect on Linux.

Download

tntconnect.flatpakref

Installation

Prerequisites

flatpak needs to be installed. You can install it on Ubuntu by running the following commands in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flatpak gnome-software-plugin-flatpak
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
				

Afterwards reboot before you try to install TntConnect.

Installation of TntConnect

Depending on your system, downloading and opening the link above might install the flatpak package. Otherwise run the following command in a terminal:

flatpak install --arch=i386 https://www.beilharz-family.de/software/tntconnect.flatpakref
				

After installing the flatpak you might want to upgrade TntConnect to a newer (beta) version.

For security reasons only the files under ~/Documents are visible inside of the flatpak. If you want to see all files in your home directory, you can run TntConnect like this:

flatpak run --filesystem=home com.tntware.TntConnect
				

NOTE: When creating a new database or opening an existing one, explicitly select the path in your Linux home directory (/home/username/...) instead of the emulated path in Windows Explorer – while the emulated path might show your files TntConnect won't be able to open them.

Limitations

Due to a bug in WINE it is not possible to open any database that has the "Require this database to be on an encrypted drive" option enabled.

Troubleshooting

  • Don't run flatpak commands as sudo – if they require sudo privileges they will ask.

Thank you so much!! I've been fighting with wine and playonlinux off and on for several years. My success has been spotty at best.

I just installed TntConnect through your flatpak and it works great!

One suggestion:

Please include a note in your instructions that after running this command:

 flatpak install --arch=i386 www.beilharz-family.de/.../tntconnect.flatpakref

there will be a question about a remote runtime or something like that. I selected Y, since the option said Y/n, and usually a capital letter is the default for linux. However, the install failed. I had to purge flatpak and reinstall it. Then, when I selected no for using remote runtime, the install went well.
