OK, folks, I really need help. The insanity has gotten out of control.
Unfortunately that turns out to be false. I left revision 169 active. And behind my back, with no action taken on my part, snap has deleted that revision from my machine, along with its successor (190) which had the problem, and has replaced those two revisions with two other revisions (194 and 199) which also both have the problem.
So, please, I am begging you. I need help because I cannot simply unplug my internet to keep this malware from continuing to infest my machine. And at this point snap is definitely acting like malware from my perspective as a reluctant sysadmin.
In earlier messages I asked for several things and they have not happened. I humbly request advice about what is the correct escalation path to get these issues addressed so that I can:
- control what software is running on my machine without disconnecting my machine from the net, and
- contact and hopefully get support from whomever is creating these broken builds of musescore that keep getting pushed to my machine against my will. I need to be in touch with someone who is willing to be responsible for fixing the problems with the stuff they are pushing. If they are not willing to work on the problems, and instead will insist on pointing a finger at someone else, I would humbly request that they stop building and pushing stuff they are not willing to take responsibility for.
Please, please, please, I need the madness to stop and I respectfully ask each of you what you would do in my position. I do not know how snap works, I trusted others here who claimed to know how it works, and who apparently happened to be mistaken, and I have no idea where to turn for help now.
Music typesetting is one of the main things I do with my linux machine, and now this malware has, to a significant degree, disabled or at least made much more painful that important function of my machine.
Please can someone point me to the correct process for obtaining help with this kind of problem? I don’t know why the entire snap-affected world is not crying out about this, or maybe they are and I’m looking in the wrong place, but I beg you, please help me. I’m grateful for the advice I’ve been given here but the most basic things in that advice unfortunately have not worked for me so I don’t have any idea how I can proceed to restore my machine to a stable, working state.
