containers work such that you can safely upgrade them or your system without breaking things (usually). If the container breaks our of its container to control system level stuff, then yes, there may be a possibility that some functionality will break with this specific software running in the container.

Look through the forums or reach out to the developer. You can always upgrade. If it does not work, down grade.

I don’t use flatpak so I am not much of help on that one, but here is a reference to the Arch Wiki that should help you out. If you have any specific issues, I may be able to assist from there.

I don’t use nVidia stuff and I don’t use flatpak.

From their site, they say do this first,
https://flatpak.org/setup/Pop!_OS/

You should be able to install from the web at flathub since you are using an Ubuntu variant. Click the install button:
https://www.flathub.org/apps/details/com.leinardi.gwe

From Leinardi’s githlab:

Install using

flatpak --user remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak --user install flathub com.leinardi.gwe
flatpak update # needed to be sure to have the latest org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.nvidia

You are having issues with the NV libraries so that update step may be what is needed. IT looks like you did not run that step.

Then you can run it with

flatpak run com.leinardi.gwe

Also note that

how can i tell if im running Nvidia Beta drivers


I don’t use NV hardware so I can’t really tell you.

Usually their beta driver is denoted with a release number that is not GA. Sou I am sure that if you look at the beta driver on that site and verify with the version that you have installed.
