Requesting A Package

Packages are how users install Software in Solus, however if we are missing one you can let us know using our Task Tracker.

Please look to see if an issue has been filed for the software or library you require. If there isn't an existing request, you can use the template below for requesting packages to be added to the Solus Package Repository. The Third Party Repository has been deprecated and will not be accepting any new packages.

You will be asked in the form to provide the following information, please provide as much as possible:

  • Name
  • Homepage
  • Why should this be included in the repository? If we already offer similar software in our repository or third party, please provide information on what your proposed software does that our existing offerings don't (differentiators).
  • Is it Open Source (yes/no)
  • If no: Are we allowed to distribute it?
  • Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software?
  • Link to source tarball/zip file. files are not permitted. We require versioned tarballs, for example: "1.2.3.tar.gz" or "packagename-1.2.3".

Please put this information in a new issue.
