Can Librem 5 run Flutter linux desktop apps? Yep! I was able to successfully build and run my BodySculpting weightlifting workout app today on Librem 5 itself. Code once, build for Android, iOS, and Libremt5, how cool is that!

@linmob The only issue I ran into is that Librem5 has an older version of libgcrypt which still works but doesn't have a ".pc" file for it. I just manually created this file here: `/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig/libgcrypt.pc`
