Nvidia Flatpak Nvidia Driver

Upon listing my Flatpak’s I noticed an Nvidia driver installed:
nvidia-460-56 org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.nvidia-460-56
however, I’m using the official repository drivers:
linux59-nvidia 460.67-1
Not sure why the flatpak is installed, just want to make sure I won’t brick anything if I remove it.

i don’t think you should remove anything;
each time i get an update from flathub it installs or update some nvidia component like the one you mentionned.
i guess it needs it for it’s sandbox/runtime.

if you want to remove runtimes and extensions that are not used by installed applications, use:

$ flatpak uninstall --unused
