So cric is a gui for Java’s jlink command, used to make custom runtime images.
The cric snap contains it’s own custom runtime (command produced by cric) so it runs fine.
It’s up to the user of cric to provide the jlink command, JDK’s and jmods to work with, it can be from many providers and for many operating systems and in many different versions.
The problem is that in strict mode, cric is limited to home and removable-media,
that’s the reason for this request.
I first started out here and is open for other working suggestions than classic confinement.
Here’s a working snapshot of the snapcraft.yaml
