Master PDF Editor

I was glad to see that Master PDF Editor is now available as a snap package, and seems to be produced directly by Code Industry. This is a package that I am using now in its DEB-format. As I tried to replace the DEB-package by the snap version, I discovered it doesn’t work on my system. The app logo is not added to the activity app list, and can neither be started from the terminal with the ‘snap run’-command. I also discovered that the program doesn’t add a specific directory to the snap partition within the home directory. As a result I had to switch back to the deb package, at least for the moment. Of course I hope that the snap will work soon and find its way to many users. My system is Ubuntu 22.04.03 LTS x86_64 with kernel 6.2.0-39-generic.

For now, as it’s a proprietary snap, we can’t do much. But, you can run it using

snap run master-pdf-editor-5.masterpdfeditor5

This you will get from the snap info master-pdf-editor-5 command

Many thanks for this answer. For the time being, I will stick to the deb app but inform the producers and hope they can fix the problem. BTW: I normally prefer snaps as compared to deb or other package formats, but I want to keep using them all.
