It is sometimes useful to include a custom dialog in your snap:
- To display a snap obsoletion notice (when migrating snap to another namespace)
- To display snap-specific notices, including but not limited to security confinement interface warnings
The following are some ways to implement these, according to the type of the application you’re snapping.
If you’re using
gnome-platform content sharing snap, merge the following part definition to your snapcraft yaml:
parts: # Integrate custom dialogs in your snap - doc - snapcraft.io # https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/integrate-custom-dialogs-in-your-snap/10825 zenity: plugin: nil stage-packages: - zenity prime: - usr/bin/zenity - usr/share/zenity/*
parts: # Integrate custom dialogs in your snap - doc - snapcraft.io # https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/integrate-custom-dialogs-in-your-snap/10825 zenity: plugin: nil stage-packages: - zenity
next adding the following layout definition:
layout: # Fix resource relocation problem of zenity part /usr/share/zenity: symlink: $SNAP/usr/share/zenity
Now you should be able to call
zenity after the effect of the
desktop-launch launcher. Also check out The Zenity integration stage snap for an alternative.
YAD(Yet Another Dialog)
Qarma is a dialog implementation which is a Qt clone of Zenity. Unlike Kdialog, Qarma does not depend on KDE libraries.
To integrate Qarma merge the following part definition:
parts: qarma-integration: plugin: nil stage-snaps: - qarma/18 stage: - usr/bin/qarma
16 for snaps targeting Ubuntu Core 16(coming soon), refer
qarma --help for instructions on using Qarma.
