Flatpak apps can't read some folders



  • Forrest Smith

    hi fangsixie,

    If you move any files you need to your Downloads folder, you should be able to access them. You'll just need to manually enter the path to Downloads, as it is hidden from the command line by default.

    What is the manual path to Downloads?

  • Forrest Smith

    The hidden "Downloads" folder should be in the default directory your Flatpak starts you in - the user's "home" directory is in /home/chronos/user/ . 

    Because each individual Google user on a Chromium OS device has a unique string that defines their user, that path is also going to be /home/user/[unique string]/Downloads .
