Phone Compatibility:

5 of 5 Points, fully optimized

How to install:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install fractal



flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Fractal



Known Issues:

Using the apt-version of Fractal is not recommended as it, in some cases, doesn't remember login information. This is due to the way the Gnome Keyring works - will presumably be fixed in the future. As a workaround you can try unlocking the keyring by first starting an application that unlocks the keyring successfully (f.e. geary, epiphany - if you have saved passwords and try login to a site for which you have a saved password).
