I need to use web apps on Pop!_OS for work (Outlook, Teams etc) and for personal use when Linux is the poor sibling of Windows. Case in point - Amazon Music desktop player: Windows and MacOS? Yes! For Linux? NO! Booooo, hisss.
When I add a web page as an app in Microsoft Edge I get an error:
This Flatpak does not have write access to ~/.local/share/applications and ~/.local/share/icons, so it cannot install or uninstall PWAs." (progressive web apps)
Once you grant access to those two directories (Flatseal is the easiest method), you can attempt to re-create the shortcuts from (URL) chrome://apps
So I installed Flatseal, and opened it. I get a long list of applications to choose from on the left and a list of properties for each application (when selected) on the right. One of the sections of properties is ‘Filesystem’ where I added those two directories for Microsoft Edge. It did not work (and I got a warning triangle icon on each entry).
Has anyone made Microsoft Edge progressive web apps work on Ubuntu 22.04 or Pop!_OS 22.04?
I have looked for some guidance on using Flatseal and found nothing helpful - any recommendations?
@jay - Maybe installing and using web apps with Edge and/or Chrome (based on Chromium) is an idea for a video?
