Kate will not Run in linuxcnc

i am trying to run kate on linuxcnc. i installed kate as per the instructions for debian and all steps seem to complete but it will not run from terminal and does not show up anywhere else

what is the error you see when trying to start it ?

snaps use quite a lot of in-kernel features for their security confinement, given linuxCNC uses a heavily patched realtime kernel (AFAIK at least), it is likely that kernel features are missing or broken due to that patchery …
