Hi Daniel, thank you for your reply. The App is Pixelorama.
But the problem is that I have more than one symlink and I have three disks and I have different mount points. I use some disks and partitions as backup too.
As you can see, making a bind mount for each case is not a practical solution. I use symlinks a lot because they are more suitable for the purpose.
The problem is that sometimes I need to open a backup to check or to try again. And the directory have a lot of images to choose (and categories) so it is not good to bind mount each.
I have too a directory with Assets that I need to open constantly to check what is more suitable for some project. So anyway it is not practical do a bind for each of that directories for only one or two applications.
And I work with a friend on another computer that sometimes need to transfer files to, then I have a complete mount point shared across the network too.
I really don’t understand for what is suitable Snap if it does not give access to the full directory structure. Because I have a way to work and I don’t want to change it completely only to suit a requirement of one or two apps.
I always work as I mentioned above and all apps on my system can access that files without trouble because I set the permissions with the system itself. I don’t need extra protection with more permissions limit.
Sorry guys but I really don’t understand the purpose of Snap. It is heavy (occupy lot of disk space): it already do a lot of bind mounts (I don’t know if that consume system resources, but it is clear that it uses disk space); and if that wasn’t enought it add more permission limits too. So, really, I don’t understand for what is Snap useful. I have near no one app for Snap because all of that.
Sorry guys but really, I tried a lot to make Snap useful for me but I always end uninstalling the app and installing it manually on the system.
The only good part of Snap is that I quickly can found updated apps to test.
