Nigel,

This was posted to this list:

The short version is, the at-spi bus is not available in the flatpak
sandbox. I know there was an issue raised back in 2016, to try and get
this resolved. The web url for this github issue is,
https://github.com/flatpak/flatpak/issues/79. I really hope we can get
something resolved with this technology, because I know more and more
programs are using it, besides Chirp.

So until the at-spi bus is available in the flatpak sandbox it will
not be accessible.

Is there a date on when CHIRP will be written in the latest version of
a python so that it can again be available in the repositories and NOT
conflict with the distributions newer python?

Best wishes,
David
