Probably nobody requested such applications so far.
Fill free to make a package request. :)

I used a CubicSDR flatpak from github and got the software to run but the USB receiver did not engage with the interface [showed up as a device but did not work]. I could look at my voice using the pulseaudio using the mic from the webcam for what that is worth :roll:

Using Flatpak (Linux)

Install flatpak using instructions from http://flatpak.org/getting.html
Install the gnome repo and 3.20 runtime if you don't have it already:
# download and install key, add remote
wget https://sdk.gnome.org/keys/gnome-sdk.gpg
sudo flatpak remote-add --gpg-import=gnome-sdk.gpg gnome https://sdk.gnome.org/repo/

# note: if the installer crashes just run it again until it finishes.
flatpak install gnome org.gnome.Platform 3.20
Install CubicSDR flatpak flatpak install --bundle CubicSDR-0.2.0.flatpak
Once installed, run with flatpak run com.cubicsdr.App
To uninstall CubicSDR flatpak (or prepare for re-install) flatpak uninstall com.cubicsdr.App

This is an important reason why i am not using Solus. Because of gnuradio and rtl-sdr are not supported. You need rtl-sdr installed for Cubicsdr flatpak to work!!
I like Solus but need SDR radio on my daily distro.
