Cannot open URL in browser from flatpak app

June 20, 2023 — BarryK

This is discussed somewhere on the Puppy Forum. Forum member dimkr posted that 'xdg-desktop-portal' and 'xdg-desktop-portal-gtk' packages are required.

I have compiled those in a running EasyOS, but no joy. Tested starting the daemons. Tested KeePassXC flatpak, when click on a URL, nothing happens, nothing output to the commandline either.

This problem is reported so many times on the Internet, did a quick google, can't see a solution. Will have to troubleshoot it more thoroughly later. Might bring out Easy 5.4.2 and try to fix the this problem afterward.
