Flexibility of ENDLESS OS

I am regular user of ubuntu os. When i bought new laptop, it was pre-installed with it. When i used, i can’t install new softwares ! That means, it’s a useless to me ! I can’t customize it… restriction is everywhere.

If there is any other way to manage this things then please share with us. Otherwise I will go back to Ubuntu.

Thank you.

Hi @shivang_patel
It depends on what software you want to install.
If you want to install developtment tools sucs as jdk or android studio I think you better stick with ubuntu. Just reinstall your ubuntu with newest version.

If you just want to install office, game, video/audio tools, software for average users, you can go with EndlessOS.

Hi @risiyanto

Ya… you are right. I must stick with Ubuntu. One good side for Endless OS is, Kernal. It’s kernal is good with my laptop. I think i need to install endless os’s kernel in to ubuntu.

Thanks !

Android Studio is available in the Endless app store, so the JDK is available inside this Flatpak - it’s actually also included within the Flatpak SDK that Endless OS apps are built against - so you can get in to the flatpak and use javac:

ramcq@upsilon:~$ flatpak install --runtime eos-runtimes com.endlessm.Sdk//eos3.1
Installing: com.endlessm.Sdk/x86_64/eos3.1 from eos-runtimes

2386 metadata, 26826 content objects fetched; 267608 KiB transferred in 700 seconds                                                                                                           
ramcq@upsilon:~$ flatpak run --filesystem=host --command=javac com.endlessm.Sdk/x86_64/eos3.1 -version
javac 1.8.0_102


  1. Open the application called ‘Terminal’
  2. In this application run the first command:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
