    Had to get FileZilla from Flatpak and use it with my multi-disk partition layout... that's when I reallized why native beats sandboxed - couldn't access any of my custom partitions, untess I specified extra flags on launch to allow it outside the sandbox.

    @theKarlisK thought the whole point of these things was to make applications simpler...

    @lxmcf it was - the idea of flatpak and snap was to provide simple, standardised way to easily get an app working (and to update/configure them all in a unified manner) across different distributions of linux instead of the distro official or custom repos. They managed to achieve that with apps that don't need extensive access to system resources (like skype, GIMP, Discord...) but this seems to complicate things when you put it on something with customizations and it requires additional configuration (like FileZilla or Steam). I'm sure they'll find a way to fix or work around this.

    I once wanted to use flatpak to install qTox, but the whole process was a mess if you don't have flatpak already installed. In the end it was easier to compile qTox from sources than using flatpak 🙄

    Snap is a fucking mess. Try installing Docker... 🙄
