I have a user trying to install nift/nsm on a virtual machine running Ubuntu Server 16lts using a non-root user and nift doesn’t seem to be able to create files or set email/username settings with Git. I’ve had them try both ‘snap install nift’ and ‘sudo snap install nift’.
The problem comes with trying to run:
nift clone https://email@example.com/html5up-nsm-templates/dimension.git
It works fine on my machine (ubuntu 18.04 on a macbook air with root user), both using sudo and without. I’m guessing it’s a problem with snap setting up home:network, but I’m not really sure. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?
They do get the following when installing snapd
