Eve, Steam & Flatpak


I have my Eve backup (client prefs & settings) backed up regularly on an external drive. Recently, I re-installed Steam via Flatpak and downloaded Eve again. However, I can’t seem to copy back my backed up data to their appropriate folders in Eve, apparently the Flatpak version of Steam is read-only and I cannot write into the folders.

Anyone know of a solution to this? Much appreciated!

IIRC flatpak creates its own env and folders. you need to find the actual dirs of flatpak.

Still IMO the best option is to install eve directly, without Steam nor flatpak.
