Hi,

using silverblue on personal laptop seems to be a perfect choice,
but for my work laptop I need to know few things:

I use Gummi which needs a lot of LaTex cli packages
I use IDEs or editors (geany) which needs many cli tools, compilers, …etc.

I can’t use podman/docker because it’s not me calling them, it’s the GUI like Gummi/VSCode

so what should we do?
should we say it’s not the desired use case?
or should we document how to pass docker/podman commands to such GUI?

should we have something like
