Hey ya’ll! I’ve been experimenting with using homebrew as companion to Flatpaks/Flathub to provide CLI apps.
I’ve been using it fulltime for months and it’s been a great experience!
However at some point I installed a package that pulled in
pk11-kit, which it stuck in
/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/bin. This is where homebrew sticks binaries. Since this path is first in my $PATH, my flatpak installation started using it.
This resulted in both my discord and steam flatpaks using the homebrew
pk11-kit, which broke both apps. There are millions of homebrew installs on linux so I was perplexed on how there haven’t been more issues like this.
I was wondering if there maybe was a way to set a specific environment variable for flatpak to ignore these paths to keep both systems decoupled? Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!
