shared config folder between appimage and snap

Post by bambuko »

I know that config files for appimage and snap are located in different places:

config files (appimage) for Master branch:
/home/username/.local/share/FreeCAD

config files (snap) for Master branch:
/home/username/snap/freecad/common

It would be desirable at least for me for the config of both appimage version and snap version to be shared, making it easy to switch between versions.
So I tried copying the one I use for appimage, to the config folder for the snap version.
The results were not exactly as I was hoping :oops: :roll:

This is my appimage setup (exactly as I want it to be ;) ):
