XDG_DATA_DIRS

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 2021-11-16.

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
