It seems impossible.

For instance, I've executed:

flatpak install flathub com.dosbox.DOSBox

Along with the new whole root filesystem I've got this executable:


Upon running:

flatpak run com.dosbox.DOSBox

Along the other things I've got "dosbox" process with an executable
pointing at:

# ls -al /proc/6961/exe
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 0 Apr  7 15:59 /proc/6961/exe -> /newroot/app/bin/dosbox

Apparmor is written in such way that it requires an absolute pathname of
the executable to apply its policy to.

The problem is:

aa-genprof /var/lib/flatpak/.../dosbox

Produces zero effect.

Alternative approaches such as:

aa-genprof /newroot/app/bin/dosbox


nsenter -t 6961
aa-genprof /newroot/app/bin/dosbox

rightfully complain that:

ERROR: /newroot/app/bin/dosbox does not exists, please double-check the path

Of course, what you could try is to apply Apparmor policy to
/usr/bin/bwrap (which executes all flatpak 'containers'), but it fails
to generate any useful policy for me.
