NAME         top

       flatpak-pin - Pin runtimes to prevent automatic removal

SYNOPSIS         top

       flatpak pin [OPTION...] PATTERN...

DESCRIPTION         top

       Flatpak maintains a list of patterns that define which refs are
       pinned. A pinned ref will never be automatically uninstalled (as
       are unused runtimes periodically). This can be useful if for
       example you are using a runtime for development purposes.

       Runtimes that are explicitly installed, rather than installed as
       a dependency of something else, are automatically pinned.

       The patterns are just a partial ref, with the * character
       matching anything within that part of the ref. Only runtimes can
       be pinned, not apps. Here are some example patterns:

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are understood:

       -h, --help
           Show help options and exit.

           Instead of adding the patterns, remove matching patterns.

       -u, --user
           Pin refs in a per-user installation.

           Pin refs in the default system-wide installation.

           Pin refs in a system-wide installation specified by NAME
           among those defined in /etc/flatpak/installations.d/. Using
           --installation=default is equivalent to using --system.

       -v, --verbose
           Print debug information during command processing.

EXAMPLES         top

       $ flatpak pin

       $ flatpak pin org.freedesktop.Platform//19.08

       $ flatpak pin --remove org.freedesktop.Platform//19.08
