Default Can't change download path

Hello,

I've installed Jdownloader2 on Ubuntu 20.04, but I can't change the defaut download path. When I click "Browse" the window can't browse my extern disk : /media/seb/NTFS/

If I change the path manually by entering the path with the keyboard, it seems to work but when download begins error appears "can't create directory"

Sounds like you've installed the community flatpak version which restricts access to very few folders, for example Downloads only. You have to modify the configuration of this flatpak package to allow custom/different folders as well.
see github.com/flathub/org.jdownloader.JDownloader/issues/3#issuecomment-409564427

You're welcome!
In both (snap, flatpak) you will have to customize the allowed paths by yourself. Maybe a symlink would have worked, I don't know.

HI, you can easily configure the directories you want in this great software for flatpak permissions, read this article it's good to know how to overcome some permission issues with ease. The software is : FlatSeal

medium.com/nerd-for-tech/linux-flatpak-permissions-easy-mode-826602463d80

It's easy, enter the software -> choose the download -> file system -> add your folders locations, and exit... next time you boot ..all the paths are available. (even external disks)


Good Luck

FlatSeal is a must for flatpak software... nice graphical UI and easy to configure.
