Flatkill is not a good resource, it's both FUD and factually innacurate. It gets brought up in every discussion about flatpak and gets dissected every time:

I agree that Flatkill should not be mentioned on this wiki page at all, it's complete and utter FUD. It's also a pretty nasty bias against Flatpak, on what's supposed to be a technical documentation like the Gentoo wiki. I'll be removing that section as soon as possible.
To future editors, I'm going to refrain to make any mention of this "flatkill" debacle or it's responses on the page itself (and I would encourage future editors to do the same) as that should be left to this talk page where it belongs. Thank you for bringing this up, closing. --Redstrate (talk) 22:33, 26 May 2022 (UTC)

The guide doesn't should mention setting the XDG_DATA_DIRS variable as the user gets the following warning:

Note that the directories

'/var/lib/flatpak/exports/share' '/home/$USER/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share'

are not in the search path set by the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable, so applications installed by Flatpak may not appear on your desktop until the session is restarted. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Luretia (talkcontribs) 2021-11-16
