Description Lemon Lime 2023-06-24 21:33:16 UTC
I installed app-admin/bitwarden-desktop-bin, the installation process went correctly.

However, I am unable to open the app with a usual call from the command line, as in "bitwarden"
I have to type out the entire path, (which I got from the ebuild and equery)


Is this intended? Why is it installed in /opt?

It's installed in /opt to avoid polluting the filesystem as it's a prebuilt binary from upstream with a variety of bundled libraries etc.

As for $PATH, there's no particular reason it's not included. I have no objection to adding a symlink as part of the install.
