When flatpak apps are installed in elementary OS 6 Odin, they don't seem to have access to any directories outside of their allowed / sandboxed folders. For example, they can't access the real subfolders of
flatpak override package_name_here --filesystem=path_here
And we can use
flatpak list to see all our installed flatpak apps.
For Atom for example, I've tried the following, however this doesn't have any effect, even after restart.
sudo flatpak override io.atom.Atom --filesystem=host
The same applies to other flatpak apps I've tried this with. Is there something else to try?
Update: According to the official Flatpak docs, the
/var directory is specifically blacklisted (when using the
host setting). So perhaps it's just not possible to give this permission...?
