Installing Converter on Linux

This application is available only as a flatpak on the Flathub store, so if you have Flatpak enabled on your system, then you can install it directly by typing the following command:

flatpak install flathub io.gitlab.adhami3310.Converter

Once installed, you can launch the application from your Application Grid/Menu.


Converter is not available in the official repositories of every Linux distribution, which is a bummer because it is a really easy to use and beginner-friendly front-end to ImageMagick CLI tool. Flatpaks are a nice workaround for small developers who do not have the resources or time to maintain their application for every Linux distribution. Still, you can give it a try if you are looking for a GUI image converter.
