Flatseal: manage permissions from your Flatpak applications
Flatseal is a graphical utility to review and modify permissions from your Flatpak applications.
Table of Contents
You can install it easily with Flatpak:
flatpak install flathub com.github.tchx84.Flatseal
Flatseal detects your Flatpak applications and you can modify any possible permission by just clicking the appropriate checkbox. Some sections have a folder icon for typing a path, like
Filesystem -> Other files section where you can add folder paths, so your Flatpak application can access that path.
Other buttons have a ‘plus’ icon, like ‘Enviroment’ section, to add strings (environment variables in this case). There is also a ‘Reset’ button to reset changes.
Flatseal is a great program that saves time by not having to type commands like
flatpak override every time we want to change an application permission.
