I vote for DigiKam. The version in the store is more than two years and installing it via ppa has been at times extremely painful and troublesome. Last time I tried it took me two days and left me with a messed up system.
Darktable would also be nice.

Also the entire UbuntuGIS stack would be great to have as a snap:

That includes QGIS, Grass, Marble, gdal, Saga GIS, Orfeo toolbox and some more.


I’d like to request a snap for ms-sys.

ms-sys is required to successfully burn Windows ISOs to USB sticks.The package is not present in Ubuntu/Debian repos, and this PPA is outdated.

ms-sys does need root access to devices under /dev.

MariaDB or MySQL and MongoDB
Error installing from debs/PPAs are frequent

$ snap find mongo|grep -c ^mongo

there are at least 6 versions of mongodb in the store already (from 2.2 to 3.3)

Both intellij-idea-community and intellij-idea-ultimate were published officially by jetbrains. Android Studio is coming soon.

Not updated for a while or abandoned since mongodb is already on 3.4.9 and what about mariadb or mysql?

then you should use “snap info” to find the maintainer and poke him about updating them (not sure whats missing) …
looks like @niemeyer owns these packages

mariadb and mysql would indeed need a packager …

postgresql is also in the store in a bunch of versions btw …

hi, i would like to see Qgis Firefox Ardour Google Chrome Onboard and Python

all this as snap.:grin:

Thank you I will contact him

I hope it is in your team plan

clion: a good c/c++ IDE

I think you can replace with chromium. On Nvidia have some issues but if you are using open source drives works perfectly

I started with QGis but got stuck and needed a hand from the developers:

I didn’t get much help, but it opens, and most of the things seemed to work. Any help to resurrect it would be nice.

I watching syrian tv & bounysource came up.

I would link to see as a snap.

can we consider the new firefox 57 aswell ?


A my old wish is to use again Celestia… it was a great software

in my opinion one thing that should be packaged as soon as possible would be eclipse IDE.

Even though one can easily download the IDE from their website, most people (at least most of the students I know) download the IDE from the software center. The version there is already since a couple of years outdated and nobody does anything about it.

I think it is not a big deal to package a java app right? Though I think this should be done by @snapcrafters instead of someone else. It should also have classic confinement too…
What do you think?

Support for custom fonts in the libreoffice snap is now available in the candidate channel (, revision 44). Please give it a try and report issues on that thread.

I would desperately LOVE a copy of Firefox ESR (basically locked to Firefox 52.5.2) WITH an ancient Java JRE and an enabled Java Plugin within the browser.

The reason is that a lot of old equipment has version specific Java requirements and no longer work with newer Java versions… and modern browsers don’t let you run Java Web Apps anyway.

Snaps are perfect for this kind of legacy application because it prevents that junk from screwing up the rest of your OS.

So, Firefox ESR with Java 6 and Firefox ESR with Java 7
