  1. So frustrating. So here we are as predicted with yet more fragmentation on the Linux desktop. I’d like to use this app, seeing as Alacarte no longer seems to work on Ubuntu 20.04. But I have to install flatpak. We already have snaps and debs on Ubuntu. I don’t want to install yet another protocol just for one app.
