I have run the flatpak command on my Ubuntu 19.10 vm and GNOME Web is 
reporting WebKitGTK 2.26.1 and the target is running WPE WebKit 2.27.2 
and there is still no output shown in the remote inspector.

There is a file on the target called libWPEWebInspectorResources.so 
which is in /usr/lib/wpe-webkit-1.0.  Is this file being automatically 
picked up or is there something needs adding to the command like to 
reference it?
