Are you using fish or another non-posix shell?

Yes, I am using Fish

Currently, the flatpak package doesn’t provide support for fish in setting XDG_DATA_DIRS. There was recently a PR to add support that merged but I don’t think that has been released yet.

See this topic for some alternatives:


Thanks, I changed my shell back to bash and everything works fine now

The flatpaks entries can be directly created even with fish

I found this script on Git Lab which resolves most of the issues with fish
