How to import Flatpak Steam as an source

Hi there!

I had some trouble getting Flatpak Lutris to recognize the library from my also Flatpak Steam on an different drive. Maybe this helps out anyone with a similar issue.

Give Lutris access to the Steam Flatpak install and the location of the Steam library. e.g.

~/.var/app/com.valvesoftware.Steam:ro
/mnt/Games/SteamLibrary

I recommend using Flatseal for this step.

Create a symbolic link the steam installation in your home directory

ln -s ~/.var/app/com.valvesoftware.Steam/.steam .steam

Restart both Steam and Lutris. Lutris should now be able to see Steam as an source and launch games using steam.
