Migrate directories to Flatpak

The Flatpak package uses a different path for storing bottles.

Migrate to Flatpak

In recent versions of the Flatpak and, the bottles are saved in a different location than the other packages, respecting the structure of the Flatpak package.

Paths differences

The other packages save the essential Bottles files, such as components, temps, and bottles, in the directory: ~/.local/share/bottles . Flatpak saves these files in the Flatpak data directory: ~/.var/app/com.usebottles.bottles/data/bottles.

Migrate old bottles to Flatpak

The migration is simple as it sounds - just move (or copy) the content of the path ~/.local/share/bottles to the new one ~/.var/app/com.usebottles.bottles/data/bottles

# make a copy
yes | cp -rf \
~/.local/share/bottles/* \

# or move (using rsync to take care of existing files)
rsync -a \
~/.local/share/bottles/* \

Restart Bottles and that's it.
