Can't find files in a folder

I’ve added a folder (/home/deck/.var/app/org.libretro.RetroArch/config/retroarch/saves) to Syncthing but it always displays “0 files”, even with files in the folder.

This problem doesn’t happen with the default folder (/home/deck/Sync).

What am I doing wrong? I didn’t change any other settings.

Running v1.23.0, Linux (64-bit Intel/AMD) on a Steam Deck.


Are you using the Flatpak bundle of Syncthing?

Flatpak, like Snap and other similar portable application systems, runs apps in a restricted sandbox. By default an app can only access its own files and directories along with a limited set of common ones.

I don’t have access to a Steam Deck, but I think it’s more than likely that the path /home/deck/.var/app/org.libretro.RetroArch/config/retroarch/saves isn’t in the default list of allowed paths so you’ll have to tell Flatpak to allow it:

Thanks! I was using Syncthing GTK from SteamOS “Discovery” app, so I think it was Flatpak.

I downloaded Syncthing from the website and now it’s working as expected. Thank you again!
