KiCadStepUp does not find existing 3D models

In FreeCad 0.21 I set up the KICAD6_3DMODEL_DIR to /usr/share/kicad/3dmodels. This directory contains the default 3d models for Kicad 6.0.6.

Still when I import a board it does not load the 3d models there:

What am I missing?

Hi @Andrea_Simeoni

Have you configured kSU in FC preferences to point to '/usr/share/kicad/3dmodels?

Are you with flatpack FC?
