Flatpak GTK+ application: no portal file chooser

Hi there,

I want to use `cherrytree` (a GTK+ note taking application) also on my Guix 
system and found the flatpak release. The installation of flatpak and this app 
from flathub worked fine so far but the app fails to open the file chooser 
dialog if I want to open/import any file.

Here is the error message:

        (cherrytree:2): Gtk-WARNING **: 08:55:54.552: Can't open portal file 
chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Keine derartige 
Schnittstelle ?org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser? des Objekts im Pfad 
I installed both `xdg-desktop-portal` and `xdg-desktop-portal-gtk`, all app 
specific dependencies (eg. GNOME Application Platform) were installed by 
flatpak, at least that is what I thought. 

I do not have the the GNOME desktop service installed but use bspwm as window 
manager, if this is relevant.

Do you have an idea how to fix this?

Thanks in advance,
