NAME

       flatpak-override - Override application requirements

SYNOPSIS

       flatpak override [OPTION...] [APP]

DESCRIPTION

       Overrides the application specified runtime requirements. This can be used to grant a
       sandboxed application more or less resources than it requested.

       By default the application gets access to the resources it requested when it is started.
       But the user can override it on a particular instance by specifying extra arguments to
       flatpak run, or every time by using flatpak override.

       If the application id is not specified then the overrides affect all applications, but the
       per-application overrides can override the global overrides.

       Unless overridden with the --user or --installation options, this command changes the
       default system-wide installation.

OPTIONS

       The following options are understood:

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

       --user
           Update a per-user installation.

       --system
           Update the default system-wide installation.

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

       --share=SUBSYSTEM
           Share a subsystem with the host session. This overrides the Context section from the
           application metadata.  SUBSYSTEM must be one of: network, ipc. This option can be used
           multiple times.

       --unshare=SUBSYSTEM
           Don't share a subsystem with the host session. This overrides the Context section from
           the application metadata.  SUBSYSTEM must be one of: network, ipc. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --socket=SOCKET
           Expose a well-known socket to the application. This overrides to the Context section
           from the application metadata.  SOCKET must be one of: x11, wayland, fallback-x11,
           pulseaudio, system-bus, session-bus, ssh-auth, pcsc. This option can be used multiple
           times.

       --nosocket=SOCKET
           Don't expose a well-known socket to the application. This overrides to the Context
           section from the application metadata.  SOCKET must be one of: x11, wayland,
           fallback-x11, pulseaudio, system-bus, session-bus, ssh-auth, pcsc. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --device=DEVICE
           Expose a device to the application. This overrides to the Context section from the
           application metadata.  DEVICE must be one of: dri, kvm, all. This option can be used
           multiple times.

       --nodevice=DEVICE
           Don't expose a device to the application. This overrides to the Context section from
           the application metadata.  DEVICE must be one of: dri, kvm, all. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --allow=FEATURE
           Allow access to a specific feature. This updates the [Context] group in the metadata.
           FEATURE must be one of: devel, multiarch, bluetooth, canbus. This option can be used
           multiple times.

           See flatpak-build-finish(1) for the meaning of the various features.

       --disallow=FEATURE
           Disallow access to a specific feature. This updates the [Context] group in the
           metadata.  FEATURE must be one of: devel, multiarch, bluetooth, canbus. This option
           can be used multiple times.

       --filesystem=FILESYSTEM
           Allow the application access to a subset of the filesystem. This overrides to the
           Context section from the application metadata.  FILESYSTEM can be one of: home, host,
           xdg-desktop, xdg-documents, xdg-download, xdg-music, xdg-pictures, xdg-public-share,
           xdg-templates, xdg-videos, xdg-run, xdg-config, xdg-cache, xdg-data, an absolute path,
           or a homedir-relative path like ~/dir or paths relative to the xdg dirs, like
           xdg-download/subdir. The optional :ro suffix indicates that the location will be
           read-only. The optional :create suffix indicates that the location will be read-write
           and created if it doesn't exist. This option can be used multiple times.

       --nofilesystem=FILESYSTEM
           Remove access to the specified subset of the filesystem from the application. This
           overrides to the Context section from the application metadata.  FILESYSTEM can be one
           of: home, host, xdg-desktop, xdg-documents, xdg-download, xdg-music, xdg-pictures,
           xdg-public-share, xdg-templates, xdg-videos, an absolute path, or a homedir-relative
           path like ~/dir. This option can be used multiple times.

       --add-policy=SUBSYSTEM.KEY=VALUE
           Add generic policy option. For example, "--add-policy=subsystem.key=v1
           --add-policy=subsystem.key=v2" would map to this metadata:

               [Policy subsystem]
               key=v1;v2;

           This option can be used multiple times.

       --remove-policy=SUBSYSTEM.KEY=VALUE
           Remove generic policy option. This option can be used multiple times.

       --env=VAR=VALUE
           Set an environment variable in the application. This overrides to the Context section
           from the application metadata. This option can be used multiple times.

       --own-name=NAME
           Allow the application to own the well-known name NAME on the session bus. This
           overrides to the Context section from the application metadata. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --talk-name=NAME
           Allow the application to talk to the well-known name NAME on the session bus. This
           overrides to the Context section from the application metadata. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --no-talk-name=NAME
           Don't allow the application to talk to the well-known name NAME on the session bus.
           This overrides to the Context section from the application metadata. This option can
           be used multiple times.

       --system-own-name=NAME
           Allow the application to own the well known name NAME on the system bus. If NAME ends
           with .*, it allows the application to own all matching names. This overrides to the
           Context section from the application metadata. This option can be used multiple times.

       --system-talk-name=NAME
           Allow the application to talk to the well known name NAME on the system bus. If NAME
           ends with .*, it allows the application to talk to all matching names. This overrides
           to the Context section from the application metadata. This option can be used multiple
           times.

       --system-no-talk-name=NAME
           Don't allow the application to talk to the well known name NAME on the system bus. If
           NAME ends with .*, it allows the application to talk to all matching names. This
           overrides to the Context section from the application metadata. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --persist=FILENAME
           If the application doesn't have access to the real homedir, make the
           (homedir-relative) path FILENAME a bind mount to the corresponding path in the
           per-application directory, allowing that location to be used for persistent data. This
           overrides to the Context section from the application metadata. This option can be
           used multiple times.

       --reset
           Remove overrides. If an APP is given, remove the overrides for that application,
           otherwise remove the global overrides.

       --show
           Shows overrides. If an APP is given, shows the overrides for that application,
           otherwise shows the global overrides.

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

       --ostree-verbose
           Print OSTree debug information during command processing.
