Bottles unable to access mounted drives

Hello there Bottles team and everyone else,

Please excuse me for the noobish issue I have here. However, I’m simply unable to make Bottle access my mounted drives.

I even tried to add a folder in the drive through Flatseal, by adding the path: /run/media/myusername/… etc. (i.e. where it is mounted), but to no avail. Also tried the command line: flatpak override --user --filesystem=“path” com.usebottles.bottles , didn’t work either. When I try to open it from within the program I have running inside Bottles, it simply doesn’t see it.

Interestingly enough, even though I allowed access to the home folder through Flatseal, it can’t see my home directory anyway.

What must I be doing wrong here? I know that I was able to add these drives/folders through Lutris/POL, so I don’t understand what’s the problem.
