    Using some Flatpaks here too, no issues at all.

    Care to elaborate? Sure, it's not perfect (well, what's perfect anyway?), but I had the impression it works quite well. We even started to use it at work to manage internal proprietary software -- to move away from Ubuntu1404, now that the support ran out.

    Exactly, this seems to be the corresponding MR:

    https://github.com/flatpak/flatpak/pull/2678

    The purpose seems to be to "initialize" a new database in the sandbox with already existing settings.

    Does this mean applications now have their own, individual copy of their respective dconf database? If so, how would one be supposed to change the settings (I presume gsettings wasn’t designed for this?)?
    I believe now they simply migrate from dconf to ini files, simply because the majority of apps using GSettings don't need the extra performance that dconf provides, and apparently there's no active dconf maintainer to work on an actual config portal of some sort.

    A huge number of the apps in the Deepin distro are bundles as flatpak apps. I've tried lots of them. Didn't see any issues. I'm running Slack and Skype under flatpak now. No issues. Got some examples?

    Sounds like you have not installed many and were unlucky. The majority of the flatpaks I have installed have worked perfectly.\

    If it not that it could be a theme issue.

    Please note if it a theme issue is not a flatpak only bug.
