libhandy is also a runtime dependency, without it installed I got Unsatisfied dependency: Handy. And I second the missing appstream-glib dependency.

Seems to need appstream-glib to be installed in order to run. I'd suggest adding it to deps() directly.

That's a very reasonable idea. Can you ask upstream if they'll consider it?

If upstream can make the change themselves, it'll trickle down to us and other distros. If they're against it, I'll add it to package().

@whynothugo have you considered adding a line to the package() section that is or is something like ln -s com.github.tchx84.Flatseal /usr/bin/flatseal to make like easier for people who often launch binaries from the terminal?

This is missing cmake and libhandy to build in clean chroot.

Installing flatseal through flatpak apparently(?) would have required me to download an additional ~500MiB of GNOME libraries through flatpak which I already have on my system and do not need in flatpak, so I for one am grateful that this AUR package exists

I'm tempted to delete this package in favour of the flatpak one. Given that this is a tool to configure FLATPAK overrides, I can't imagine someone wanting to use it, but being against using flatpak.

Any objections?

I have the native package installed, and run it with firejail, mostly as an experiment to see if I can prevent Flatseal from escalating its own permissions.

This hasn't been great so far; the latest version breaks with firejail.

Are you using your own package or the flatpak version? :p

What error do you see without webkit2gtk? I added it to dependencies, but I've now noticed it's not installed on my system, and com.github.tchx84.Flatseal works fine.
