So flatpak only allows none of the devices in the sandbox, or every single one of them? I can't specify I just need a specific usb pid/vid or something?

Great sandbox

apparently udev rules are also not a thing. I mean flatpak is perfect for shitty hardware manufacturers apps, would be great if it can actually talk to hardware...


@martijnbraam inelegant, but you can add a permission to break out of the sandbox. This way you can install the appropriate udev rules at startup. The problem is that uninstalling won't remove the udev rules. In these cases a regular package is probably the best option.
