Summary0017670: flatpack: messes with standard ~/.local/share/applications mechanism
the Gnome web site [] states that .desktop file standard search path includes .local/share/applications
Yet file /etc/profile/ breaks it. From what I understand, the existing components of XDG_DATA_DIRS are modified to always include "flatpak/exports/share", but the actual ".local/share" is lost.

May I suggest that, when using flatpak, you put everything you want in front of XDG_DATA_DIRS, but keep .local/share ? This way the applications managed by flatpak are prioritized, but legacy applications are still seen.
