NixCon 2023

Blending NixOS with Flathub for friends and family
09-08, 14:25–14:30 (Europe/Berlin), Lecture hall (Room 122)

Creating a NixOS workstation configuration for non-Linux experts using Flathub with a graphical storefront so they can install the apps they want.

Since 2006 I've been helping friends and family run desktop Linux. This lightning talk reflects on the distributions I've used in the past and why I'm now using NixOS with Flathub enabled to make NixOS accessible to non-expert Linux users.

Do you allow your talk to be recorded? – yes What level of experience in Nix is the talk addressed to?
