All of sudden i don't have "Snap" installed in Ubuntu 18.10 anymore because of which all the apps installed which is installed through "Snap" dosen't respond or work anymore


#1

(I think the title is enough.)


#2

Please run snap version and snap run _any_of_the_snaps'_identifier_name_ in a terminal and report the result.


#3

It says:

Command 'snap' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install snapd

#4

Please run the mentioned command then logout and re-login your user session and try to reproduce the issue.


#5

Reinstalling the does solved the problem but, really disappointed. What happened? Do i can help somehow? Like by sending the bug report,etc.


#6

What happened?

The snapd package is removed for certain reason.

Do i can help somehow?

Unless you can reproduce it with a certain regular workflow (e.g. not doing something that shouldn’t be done in the first place, like removing Snapd) there’s nothing you can do AFAICT.

“As far as i can tell”, I wanted to solve this problem, so i found an article > https://itsfoss.com/error-snap-not-found/ and found almost all negative comments. Let me know what u think of one of this comment by guy named Michel Bushey , "Snap is doomed to fail with it’s idiotic method of installing into /snap. Why would they not add a symlink to /bin? I’m not adding /snap to PATH, I’m uninstalling snap and staying away from this idiocracy. "


#8

Why would they not add a symlink to /bin? I’m not adding /snap to PATH

I would rather be curious why should snap apps contaminate the /bin directory in the first place :wink: .


#9

u probably work there at Snap. And i feel stupid to ask it here at open comment section where ur boss can see the comment. Do u really think, “Snap is perfect” to do things? Or something is still missing here…!


#10

u probably work there at Snap.

I would really hope so as there will be salary for me ;_;

Do u really think, “Snap is perfect” to do things?

Snap is not perfect, however, “certain_software isn’t installed in the system in the first place” isn’t really something that certain_software should take the blame of unless it is reproducible in a normal usecase.


#11

u mean, that “snap” should be pre-installed in all distros and it would make it perfect?


#12

Snapd is pre-installed on all supported Ubuntu releases, so the problem is, why it is no longer installed in your Ubuntu 18.10?


#13

I don’t think, its a bad thing. User are install it later if they want. Its a good thing. Pre-installing each and every shit make entire OS big filled with bloatware. So, it not that bad.


#14

re-installing each and every shit make entire OS big filled with bloatware.

Complain it on the ubuntu-devel-discuss mailing list then, we aren’t the guys that work on the Ubuntu operating system.


#15

OMG, u r not admitting “u r right”. U seeing this issue one-directionally. Think, if u r the place of Ubuntu as a developer.
