Love the OS, its perfect for my kids. I have a usecase where I want to install a flatpak to an external drive so that we can limit access to certain games by unmounting the drive.
I have installed the flakpaks via the CLI using the
--installation=<flatpak config name> and that works great. I can launch the apps via
flatpak run <flatpak id>. However, for the life of me I can’t figure out how to get the icons to show up so the kids can launch the apps on their own
I tried putting the .desktop files in
~/.local/share/applications, I tried sym-linking them into where the other flatpaks are installed. I have tried running the gnome tooling to update the desktop files via the gnome documentation. I have done the
alt +f2 +r shortcut, I have rebooted, logged out.
I’m hoping someone has a really quick/simple answer and that I just missed something easy.
How do I either manually create desktop icons or link the flatpak from the USB into the correct location so the icons will be picked up?
