Request: Classic confinement for czkawka


I wanted to request for classic confinement for my app Czkawka -

It have duplicate cleaner feature, so user may need to have access to all directories like e.g. /usr or /var.

Also it will allow to use Names Conflict feature just like in FSLint which check for files with identical names in $PATH.

Other tools like big files, invalid symlinks or empty files still can be limited by strict confinement.

Hey @qarmin,

If you check our Process for reviewing classic confinement snaps, the access to arbitrary files on the system isn’t typically a justification for classic. Strictly confined snaps can access users’ files with the home and the removable-media interfaces (which is almost always sufficient). personal-files and system-files may be used as well if needed to access further locations.

Do you think it is possible for Czkawka to plug such interfaces and remain strictly confined?


@qarmin - ping, can you please provide the requested information?
