Hello. I have a family laptop. All of the family members can access one shared folder:
/home/family. We store photos and that kind of stuff there.
Some apps like gnome photos are hardcoded to search for those files only inside
$HOME so I use Shotwell, which is harder to use but configurable.
However I noticed that if I install it as flatpak,
/home/family doesn’t exist for it. It must be due to the sandboxing.
I think maybe the way I share this folder is not the best, but it’s the simplest way I found.
If I were to install silverblue in that laptop, where all apps are flatpaks, how could I share a folder and make it available for all users? Ideally I’d like to be able to use gnome photos too, but that is maybe another problem…
