Recently I tried to install the dev version via flatpak, but it didn't work. When I'm mousing now over "games" I can still see "Widelands (beta)" there but clicking on it doesn't do anything. This lets me think that the flatpak version still exists partially on my machine.

How to remove the version which has been installed by flatpak? Will this affect the build20 version which I've installed via ppa?

And is nobody planning to bring the daily ppa back?

The flatpak is installed separately from build 20, so they do not interfere with each other. To make sure that the flatpak has been uninstalled just run:

flatpak uninstall flathub-beta org.widelands.Widelands

If it is still installed this will completely remove it. Regarding the PPA. As long as the GitHub- repo isn't mirrored to launchpad I don't see any chance of reviving it. So, your best bet at the moment are the Flatpaks.

Thanks, that's important to know.

That's a pity, but maybe flatpak can replace it

I definitely want to bring back the PPA, I just haven't had time to take care of it yet. We have an open issue for it: https://github.com/widelands/widelands/issues/3470
