Dbeaver-ce problems

The latest update of dbeaver-ce 21.1.5 released today seems to be pretty messed up. List of problems I had:

  • Installing it removed the favorite I had pinned to my application bar.
  • Searching for dbeaver the app doesn’t find anything. If you manually run dbeaver-ce from the command line it works, but then it chooses a different workspace from the previous version and you lose all your settings.

Anyone else? I can’t see a way to revert to the previous version for the time being, either.

Any suggested workarounds?

Edit: Found this related issue on github: https://github.com/dbeaver/dbeaver/issues/13587

you can always use the snap revert ... command to go back to the former version until this got fixed …

it might also make sense to submit the output of snap changes to the issue (and if there is an error also the output of snap change <change id> for this particular task)

Thanks for the tips - I learned a bit more about snap package management due to this. The maintainer has updated and fixed the issue, but now I’ve got a way to revert to a previous version if necessary.
