Requesting automatic aliases for ubuntu-budgie-welcome

Good day,

I would like to request having automatic aliases setup for the ubuntu-budgie-welcome snap package.

The current snap leverages the following for commands:

    command: usr/bin/budgie-welcome
    desktop: usr/share/applications/budgie-welcome.desktop

    command: usr/bin/budgie-welcome --jump-to=default
    desktop: usr/share/applications/budgie-themes.desktop

    command: usr/bin/budgie-welcome --jump-to=budgie-applets
desktop: usr/share/applications/budgie-applets.desktop

We are hoping to have budgie-welcome, budgie-themes, and budgie-applets exposed as top-level command aliases.

If you need additional information, please let me know.

Thank you in advance.


PS - will I need to make changes to my snapcraft.yaml to reflect the aliases?

Seems reasonable to me. They are all namespaced with 'budgie-*. +1

Thank you for the feedback.

+1 from me too! Once the aliases are defined in the store, you shouldn’t need to change it.

Thank you for the clarification. Would another build have to be triggered to spark a refresh for end users to get the new aliases to work?

Hi there - just following up on this one. Is there anything additional I need to do? Or what are the next steps?

Thank you.

Hi @popey / @jdstrand,

Is there anyone specifically that I need to follow up with? Thank you very much for both of your time.

Thank you @jdstrand. Any additional action items on my side? I have not requested an alias before. My assumption is that it will become active after the next build?

Thank you.

No. The snap declaration is updated immediately so the next time you refresh or install anew it will be in place.
