       flatpak-create-usb - Copy apps and/or runtimes onto removable media.


       flatpak create-usb [OPTION...] MOUNT-PATH REF...


       Copies the specified apps and/or runtimes REFs onto the removable media mounted at
       MOUNT-PATH, along with all the dependencies and metadata needed for installing them. This
       is one way of transferring flatpaks between computers that doesn't require an Internet
       connection. After using this command, the USB drive can be connected to another computer
       and flatpak install will prefer to install from it rather than the Internet if (a) each
       ref comes from a configured remote whose GPG keyring will be used for verification and (b)
       the refs on the drive are at least as new as what's available elsewhere (e.g. the Internet
       if you're online). For this process to work a collection ID must be configured on the
       relevant remotes on both the source and destination computers, and on the remote server.

       On the destination computer one can install from the USB (or any mounted filesystem) the
       same way you would install from the Internet, e.g. with flatpak install flathub
       org.gnome.Builder or using a GUI.

       Each REF argument is a full or partial identifier in the flatpak ref format, which looks
       like "(app|runtime)/ID/ARCH/BRANCH". All elements except ID are optional and can be left
       out, including the slashes, so most of the time you need only specify ID. Any part left
       out will be matched against what is installed, and if there are multiple matches an error
       message will list the alternatives.

       By default this looks for both installed apps and runtimes with the given REF, but you can
       limit this by using the --app or --runtime option.

       All REFs must be in the same installation (user, system, or other). Otherwise it's
       ambiguous which repository metadata refs to put on the USB drive.

       By default flatpak create-usb uses .ostree/repo as the destination directory under
       MOUNT-PATH but if you specify another location using --destination-repo a symbolic link
       will be created for you in .ostree/repos.d. This ensures that either way the repository
       will be found by flatpak (and other consumers of libostree) for install/update operations.

       Unless overridden with the --system, --user, or --installation options, this command
       searches both the system-wide installation and the per-user one for REF and errors out if
       it exists in more than one.


       The following options are understood:

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

           Copy refs from the per-user installation.

           Copy refs from the default system-wide installation.

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

           Assume that all REFs are apps if not explicitly specified.

           Assume that all REFs are runtimes if not explicitly specified.

           Create the repository in DEST under MOUNT-PATH, rather than the default location.

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

           Print OSTree debug information during command processing.
