How to fix ugly/jagged fonts in flatpak GTK applications in Fedora 35 KDE wayland

The fonts in GTK/Gnome flatpak applications in the Fedora 35 KDE wayland session currently look like garbage (they are not antialiased) unless you run them without the wayland socket. This is due to xdg-desktop-portal-gtk being built incorrectly. You can fix this by installing xdg-desktop-portal-gnome and rebooting.

Step 1. sudo dnf install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome

Step 2. Reboot

Step 3. Verify that xdg-desktop-portal-gnome is running instead of xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

Fonts in flatpak'ed GTK/Gnome applications should look fine now.
