Application has the purpose of facilitating the installation process, update and other processes in relation to the PC firmware.
About 15 days or so ago, we posted a post commenting on the development of Gnome Firmware, which would be released soon so the community could test and give feedback. Behold, the day has come.
In his personal blog, Richard Hughsie, announced the release of both GNOME Firmware and the new version of fwupd, coming in version 1.3.1 and thus facilitating the creation of the mentioned manager.
He also commented that he took advantage of the release of GNOME 3.34 to signal that the app is ready for end users to use.
He even joked that UX errors are his fault as it was not developed by the official GNOME design team. He added that he still needs to improve GNOME Firmware and add latest features for the purpose of the app.
I tested it here on my notebook, a Dell Inspiron 7559, so far the buttons have not been available, only gray. This was reported in the post and Richard himself commented that some protocols support verification and could be hidden until it works correctly.
If you want to install GNOME Firmware, you will need flatpak installed on your system, if you don't have it, just follow our tutorial.
With the terminal open, enter the following command to add the Flathub repository: (Note: If you have already added the Flathub repository, you do not need to add it again.)
flatpak remote-add –if-not-exists flathubhttps: //flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
Then install the application:
flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Firmware
Didn't like the app or did something go wrong? To remove via terminal, use this command:
flatpak remove org.gnome.Firmware
