How to choose a custom folder for vault under Linux?


quick question from a new (almost) user: I really want to try Cryptomator but I can’t figure out how to choose a custom folder for the new vault that is not in /home/user/… I can’t access my other hard drives with sync folders. In settings I have chosen “FUSE” for volume type which claims “custom directory as mount point”. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

System: Linux Mint 21.2 Cinnamon

Hey and welcome to the Cryptomator Community :slightly_smiling_face:,

I highly assume you have installed Cryptomator using Flatpak. If so, see

Well, that was fast. And also correct. Tried setting the access rights of the Flatpak installation using Flatseal and creating a vault on a different hard drive. That worked like a charm. Thanky ou very much for the support. Looking forward to using Cryptomator! :smiley:
