Possible error in the documentation regarding firejail


#1

In the section of the documentation discussing security, one line includes “local” in the address and the other does not. The command ```
/usr/bin/firejail --writable-var /usr/bin/ffmpeg “$@”
Is missing “local”. Is this correct?

Hello,

I might be wrong but I guess the documentation is correct.

Standard softwares are installed within /usr/bin and the user’s tools are located in /usr/local/bin - so that those aren’t overwritten by any eventual system update.

Then, in this case jail_ffmpeg is a user’s tool (a script indeed) located in /usr/local/bin/ that internally calls the standard software firejail situated within /usr/bin/
