Description Emanuele 2022-04-30 17:39:40 UTC
It is not a bug, but a request for functionality.
Flatpak has a flag to uninstallation to delete application data:
flatpak uninstall  App --delete-data

The advantage for the user is the saving of space on non usable data.
On Gnome Software they have a Mackup:  https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-software/-/issues/257

flatpak: Show a warning when uninstalled apps still have data present

Uninstalling from flatpak will only uninstall the app but will leave the
user data in the file system. This adds the option to remove it.
