Gnome-calculator stable, no theme permission denied (Ubuntu 18.04)

Hi. I messed around with the snap refresh and revert feature on the gnome snaps that comes preinstalled on Ubuntu 18.04

Description of bug:
There is no theme when running the gnome-calculator snap app. It is still possible to interact with the program.

When gnome-calculator is launched via terminal, the following error is shown:

(gnome-calculator:31750): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:1:0: Failed to import: Error opening file /snap/communitheme/current/share/themes/Communitheme/gtk-3.0/gtk.css: Permission denied

(see screenshots)

Steps to reproduce:

The setup: Ubuntu 18.04 (try without installing) with communitheme installed ( sudo snap install communitheme ) and enabled.

  1. Do a refresh: sudo snap refresh
  2. Install communitheme: sudo snap install communitheme
  3. Apply communitheme from the login screen.
  4. Login and launch gnome-calculator or gnome-system-monitor

I did close the lid of the laptop but I doubt it’s related to that.

I know you guys are working on theming with snaps, so I thought it might be a good idea to let you know about this.
