Gawd, I didn't want to do this, but I really want to try out Fractal (https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.gnome.Fractal)... which means I have to install Flatpak to make it easy and time conscious. I kind of hate Flatpak, but here goes.
I may keep Flatpak after this... maybe not...
@poetgrant mind if i ask why you hate flatpak?
When I have used it, it tends to be irrespective of my file structure. That isn't necessarily a problem, but it can cause issues. If I want to mess with the program in any way, I have to learn all about Flatpak just to find and edit the right files. I guess I don't hate it. I think it just annoys me.
