Subject: flatpak doesn't set XDG_DATA_DIRS
Date: Wed, 01 Jul 2020 11:10:01 +0200
Message-ID: <87k0znsis6.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)


It seems flatpak doesn't update XDG_DATA_DIRS, so installed 
applications doesn't
show in the desktop and have to be started manually using `flatpak 
run ...`.
Should the package set this? If not, what's the best practice in 
setting this?

        Note that the directories

        '/var/lib/flatpak/exports/share'
        '/home/simendsjo/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share'

        are not in the search path set by the XDG_DATA_DIRS 
        environment variable, so
        applications installed by Flatpak may not appear on your 
        desktop until the
        session is restarted.
