    launch a flatpak from terminal

    Good afternoon.
    I have been trying to run a flatpak installation from the terminal:
    flatpak run org.flatpak.abiword for example. This always results in an error that x86_64/master is not installed. How can I install this. I have upgraded etc all to no avail, help on this would be much appreciated.

    I think you have the wrong Application ID for Abiword. A search finds:
    Code:
    [dmn@Sydney ~]$ flatpak search abiword
    Name          Description            Application ID              Version       Branch      Remotes
    AbiWord       A word processor       com.abisource.AbiWord       3.0.5         stable      flathub
    So you should use: flatpak run com.abisource.AbiWord
