Im sorry if this doesnt belong here i dont know where else to ask and im going a tad insane.
I have kubuntu 23.04 installed, fresh and i installed flatpak from the ubuntu repositories and also the gnome plugin, i installed easyeffects but the thing isnt creating a menu entry and icon.
I have this eternal error where it says that the routes arent configured in XDG_DATA_DIRS
Note that the directories '/var/lib/flatpak/exports/share' '/home/arangaran/.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.
everything is as it should be and this is a fresh install so i dont know whats not working, it is as if the scripts that run at the beginning arent configuring the variable properly, i have tested this in a Ubuntu 23.04 with gnome and it works well, but i dont know if this has anything to do with KDE or not, or if something is wrong.
I have uninstalled flatpak, purged it, and deleted all traces of it from the system and i cant make it work, short of formating the system and starting from zero, but thats a lot, so please at least point me in the right direction.
Before anyone tells me to uninstall reinstall reboot, i have done that a million times it wont work, i dont know why. The flatpak apps work from commandline but there’s no entry in the menu list.
