Since I'm changing jobs, I had to migrate data from my old work computer to a new one (a personal one).
I had a few apps installed through flatpak :
I did save .app folder from the old machine to the new one. The first app I reinstalled was steam to play the mighty Civiilization VI. After installing, I had to delete .app/com.valvesoftware.Steam in order for it to launch properly , in the process I lost all my saved games - which I don't mind.
I had to do the same thing for signal .....
Now comes Gnote where I have data that I need to keep. Same deal. I have not removed the directory.
I'll admit I haven't RTFM yet, but I'm very disappointed that for all the apps I wanted to move that were flatpaked, I'm loosing data. As this use case not be taken into account ?
