jamovi can be installed using flathub.

First you need to setup flathub:
https://flatpak.org/setup/

Then you can download jamovi:
https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.jamovi.jamovi

hope this helps

Update -----

I'm here now, i've downloaded the jamovi file (click on install), but it doesn't find it ?

"flatpak install flathub org.jamovi.jamovi
error: Error searching remote flathub: Can't find ref org.jamovi.jamovi"

Thanks

hi oli,

the issue is that we don't support the ARM architecture at this time. i think there might be some issue with some of our dependencies not working on ARM.

i'll have to look into it again properly.

sorry i don't have better news.

OK, there's an arm version available from flathub. see above where you tried to add the flathub repo and it failed, this is what the command needs to be:

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

after that you should just be able to go:

flatpak install flathub org.jamovi.jamovi

and it will install it. let me know if it works, i haven't had a confirmation that our arm version works yet.

cheers
