Question for developers:

I don’t have experience with packaging for flatpak yet.

/usr/bin/installer-dist (virtualbox-installer) is:

  • A single, self-contained script without additional dependencies.
  • Designed to run as unprivileged Linux user (such as user β€œuser”) which then uses function root_cmd (preferably sudo if available or su / doas) when required. (Such as to use apt-get.)

Can a flatpak manifest file can declare that sudo / root access will be required or some other suggestions?

As far as I know, everything that requires root, is out of reach for a flatpak
