Pair with your team, on macOS and Linux.
Welcome to the beta
We’re excited to release Tuple for Linux in Beta! Please note that the client is a work in progress and we’ll be continuing to ship features as we go.
We are still working on feature parity with the Mac client. Here’s a matrix of currently supported features in the Linux Beta client.
Please report any bugs you find to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before you submit a bug report, please check if the feature you are trying to use is fully implemented or not in the supported features matrix shown below.
Installing the client
flatpakis installed (at least version 1.6.5). You can check if you already have flatpak installed with:
If not installed already, check out https://flatpak.org/setup to find instructions to install it for your distro.
Here are the instructions for some common distributions:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install flatpak flatpak --version # => 1.6.5 (or similar)
.flatpakref(this contains all required metadata to get the app):
flatpak install https://tuple.app/tuple.flatpakref
Possible needed installation commands
If you do not have GNOME runtime installed you may be prompted to add it while you are installing. Here is how to install it via flathub:
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Platform//44
Getting app upgrades
The Flatpak bundle of Tuple is set up to auto-update in the background. In order to allow auto-updates to be performed, you'll need to have the correct permissions set. To verify the permissions are correct, run this command:
flatpak permission-show app.tuple.app
Both background, and updates permissions will need to be set to "yes". If either is not, you can update them with the following commands:
flatpak permission-set flatpak updates app.tuple.app yes flatpak permission-set flatpak background app.tuple.app yes
If the auto-update is not working, you can run this command to pull changes:
Running the app
To run the app, you use
flatpak run app.tuple.app
Removing the app
If for some reason you need to uninstall the app, simply run:
flatpak uninstall app.tuple.app
Here are some tips and fixes based on a few issues or needs you may encounter.
To use SSO to sign in, you will need to select “Sign in via Browser” on the sign in window:
If you recently installed Tuple via flatpak, you may need to restart your computer. Flatpak requires a restart as part of their installation process, and without performing this restart the app location will not be available to the browser launcher.
In order for Tuple to respect light/dark mode, the same light/dark themes that are being used on the host system must be installed via flatpak.
Note, when updating Tuple, flatpak will auto-detect that the theme is missing and install it for you. When booting for the first time though, it may not be present and you’ll want to manually install. Here is a good article explaining the process:
To get Tuple to respect your Dark mode theme, run:
flatpak install org.gtk.Gtk3theme.Yaru-dark
Now when you change your host theme from light/dark, Tuple will respect the setting.
Please note that when running Manjaro, there is no AppIndicator set up by default so if you close the Tuple window, currently there is no way to get it back. We will be addressing this in the future.
Killing the process and re-running the
run command will bring the window back up:
flatpak run app.tuple.app
