My issue is with the lack of network access for some of the packages. For example, if I have an SFTP connection to a server in Thunar (not a Flatpak), and I want to try the text editor SciTE. Unfortunately, this text editor can’t see the network, so I can’t use it to edit files on the server. Another example, Meld. I want to use it to compare the files on my server with the files on my local Qube. But it doesn’t work. I simply can’t work on files outside the AppVM. The list goes on, with other text editors like VSCodium.
I’m stuck with Mousepad as a text editor, and I was hoping to try some other editors via Flatpaks, but the network access issue has me stumped.
