How to install fractal next

I’m trying to install and use fractal next using instructions at:

Opening fractal however presents with:
“Secrete Service Error. Failed to restore previous session”

What can I do to get Fractal working?

By following (your turn, as first step): “*Install Flatpak and Flathub, following the standard instructions*”. Please let me know if this worked for you.

nope same.
WARN fractal::window: Failed to restore previous sessions: Libsecret(Error { domain: g-io-error-quark, code: 0, message: "user interaction failed" })

I guess, how to install clean (get rid of previous session) ?

Merilyn wrote quality how to: And, not to suggest something I have no time to try but: Another alternative is the Snappy system developed by Canonical which might be easily offering more up to date application (who knows) you are about to reinstall.

it was missing / not working gnome-keyring.
Installed seahorse and created new key for login
That got fractal working.

[Not sure if it will keep login entry over reboot, but I can recreate if it doesn’t]
