No menu entries are created after installing snaps (terminal or snap-store) on Mint 20.1 Cinnamon, I can only run snaps from terminal. What’s wrong? When i’m installing apps with “apt install” it is ok.
Which snap did you try to install ? It is possible that the snap maintainer did not include a desktop launcher.
You may need to logout/login to ensure paths etc are setup correctly. Have you tried this?
Tried logout/login, nothing changes, snap exaples are: VLC, Evince, Flameshot.
then it is either cinnamon not respecting XDG_DATA_DIRS or ther Mint setup preventing that variable from being extended at login time … what does:
env | grep XDG_DATA_DIRS
inside a graphical terminal return ?
Which shell do you use?
Please provide the output of the following commands:
systemctl --user show-environment |grep XDG_DATA_DIRS
env |grep XDG_DATA_DIRS
