I’m a long-time Linux user (usually Debian), but I am brand-new to Qubes. I installed it earlier today and have been loving it so far, but I went to install some of my applications (Spotify, Element, Termius, etc.) and they aren’t showing up under the applications list.
Everything has been installed through the command line, and I am using the “personal” domain based off a Debian template (and yes, I am sure that I installed the apps using the personal AppVM).
The icons are not in the default list, or in the “Applications” tab of the Qube’s settings menu. I’ve tried refreshing (via the button the tab and via cli), but when I press the refresh button on the tab it seems to want to refresh for the Debian 10 template instead of for my personal AppVM. When I use the command line, I am able to specify “personal”, but it still doesn’t fix the issue.
I have verified that the programs create .desktop files, and have rebooted. I don’t know what is going on here, any help would be appreciated. Most of my work can be done from a web browser for the time being, and all the built-in apps are working fine, but I do need third-party app support to be working.
Here is the relevant documentation, I’ve referenced it for the CLI commands mentioned above for restarting/rescanning for new apps, but it doesn’t seem to work.
