How to customize gnome-software for custom distro

Hi, i wanted to customize the gnome-software app to install and read updates from apt and a personal server endpoint: https://cros-utils.hooverhigh.ml/gnome/software/apps.

Is this possible? and how do i modify the images used in the app?

Hi, welcome.

gnome-software uses the system repositories, so if your apt repository is configured in /etc/apt/sources.list (or similar) then gnome-software should find it. It uses PackageKit for this.

What images do you mean, and how/why do you want to modify them? App icons? Screenshots? The carousel?

There is documentation on the available vendor customisation options for gnome-software here: doc/vendor-customisation.md · main · GNOME / gnome-software · GitLab
