We’re the dev team behind LightBurn, software to control laser cutters.
We’ve tried using the normal plugs, but we keep running into issues where some laser devices don’t match any of the expected device plug archetypes, and using the classic confinement mode was the only way we found to properly guarantee access to the wide variety of physical devices over USB we currently support for our users.
We’ll keep trying to remove the requirement for classic confinement, of course, but for initial release we don’t see classic confinement as a barrier to listing in the SnapCraft store. Until now people have been using self-extracting files for local installation, and we think a Snap will help users better manage the installation of LightBurn on their machines.
Kind regards, The LightBurn dev team
