Flatseal – graphical utility to review and modify permissions from Flatpak applications

Flatpak is an open source containerized package format similar to Snap. While Snap relies on a central repository for software, Flatpak can be installed from different sources. The primary source is Flathub.

Flatseal is a graphical utility to review and modify permissions from your Flatpak applications.

Installation

We tested Warehouse using Manjaro, an Arch-based distro, as well as Ubuntu.

With Manjaro, Pamac (Manjaro’s front-end installation tool) lets us install either the Flatpak, or from the Arch User Repository (AUR).

Flatseal installation

On Ubuntu, we installed the software using the versatile bauh utility.
