I am new to MX-linux, just installed the latest version on my girlfriend's laptop. I thought I could install some flatpak apps for her. I think it's quite a neat solution, doesn't mess up the system libraries and the sandboxing is nice to have, even though there is an overhead of course.
From the various threads in this forum, I understand that there is no real willingness to actively support flatpak in MX-linux, is that correct?
Themes in particular are currently not working, although flatpak now actually supports themes

But as the blog post says, for themes or icons selection to be taken into account
gnome-settings-daemon can be installed via APT, but that seems to be a can of worms. What is your view?Themes are picked up via GtkSettings, which means you require a settings-daemon running to set this. On GNOME this will already be running but for other desktops you can run gsd-xsettings directly in your libexec directory provided by gnome-settings-daemon.
