flatpak-enter ā€” Enter an application or runtime's sandbox

Synopsis

flatpak enter [OPTION...] INSTANCE COMMAND [ARG...]

Description

Enter a running sandbox.

INSTANCE must be either the pid of a process running in a flatpak sandbox, or the ID of a running application, or the instance ID of a running sandbox. You can use flatpak ps to find the instance IDs of running flatpaks.

COMMAND is the command to run in the sandbox. Extra arguments are passed on to the command.

This creates a new process within the running sandbox, with the same environment. This is useful when you want to debug a problem with a running application.

This command requires extra privileges, so must be run as root or via e.g. sudo. To get TAB completion for the application ID, use sudo -E.

Options

The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Show help options and exit.

-v, --verbose

Print debug information during command processing.

--ostree-verbose

Print OSTree debug information during command processing.

$ flatpak enter 15345 sh
