Discussing How to remove snapd and flatpak … should you wish to

For efficiency, I am running dual monitor mode now. There is no way I could go back to using a single monitor, you know how difficult it is, to use the forum, and watch movies the same time with a single screen?

Yeah, I am not sacrificing my ability to do dual monitor, just cause I may not like POP OS's obsession with using FLATPAK's. I only had one issue with FLATPAK due to sandboxing. The problem was easily resolved, for which I posted a tutorial for as well.

Well l am not a multitasker and I promised my youngest when I retired they could have my second monitor which initially I only needed for stupid Outlook365 for work until I figured out how to configure my work e-mail myself in Evolution!
That said I did need to use it when I had 2 applications open, namely Okular on the right monitor and BrailleBlaster on the left monitor as I would copy and paste text from a pdf in Okular directly into BrailleBlaster on the left screen. But I only might do the occasional item for that on a voluntary basis.
If I did use 2 monitors I know that I don't have any such issues in respect of flatpaks and snap packages in Devuan! :sunglasses:

Is it safe to completely remove flatpak? for now I removed snap xD

Yes, it is, as long as you are not relying on any Flatpak packages.

As you can see ,no :slight_smile:
