Voilà! Bitmessage is updated!
#### Linux
_Some recent Linux distributions don't support QT4 anymore, hence PyBitmessage
won't run with a GUI. However, if you build PyBitmessage as a flatpak, it will
run in a sandbox which provides QT4. See the **Linux flatpak** instructions
in the **Creating a package for installation** section of this document._
To run PyBitmessage from the command-line, you must download the source, then
run `src/bitmessagemain.py`.

#### Linux flatpak
First make sure you have `flatpak` and `flatpak-builder` installed. Follow the
instructions for your distribution on [flathub](https://flatpak.org/setup/). The
instructions there only cover the installation of `flatpak`, but
`flatpak-builder` should be the same.
Once you have `flatpak` and `flatpak-builder` installed:
git clone git://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmessage.git
cd PyBitmessage/
flatpak-builder --install _flatpak -install-deps-from=flathub --force-clean --user org.bitmessage.PyBitmessage.json
This will install PyBitmessage to your local flatpak user repository, but it
takes a while to compile because QT4 and PyQt4 have to be build, among others.
When done you can launch PyBitmessage via:
`flatpak run -v org.bitmessage.PyBitmessage`
If you want to free up disk space you can remove the `Sdk` runtime again:
`flatpak uninstall org.freedesktop.Sdk//18.08`
