I am trying to base my system as much as I can around flatpaks. This includes file manager, browsers…
I keep running into the problem where the different components can’t seem to interact between each other.
For example my file manager is Dolphin. If I try to right click and save an image on firefox, it will do nothing and the logs will display the following:
(firefox:2): Gtk-WARNING **: 22:20:14.257: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop
Same thing with thunderbird. If I try to open a link to the web, instead of loading it on firefox it will do nothing and display the following text:
Could not launch default application for URI: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.OpenURI” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop
