@admins, please consider pinning this post considering it’s usefulness, thanks!

This devtools might be handy:

validator/validator: The Nu Html Checker – Helps you catch unintended mistakes in your HTML, CSS, and SVG

both in daemon mode and local mode.

Radiotray-NG very simple to use radio program to listen to radio stations which rests in system tray.

Beside 64-bit please also create 32-bit package. I am using Ubuntu 16.04 on old laptop only capable of running 32-bit applications. I have wasted two hours to create package from source code. Radiotray-NG requires never version of cmake compiler to compile from source code then the one by default available in Ubuntu 16.04. There is cmake deb package on official web site, but only for 64-bit computers, but no 32-bit one. I was required to download source code for cmake compiler!!! and self-compile and install it. Then second step download Radiotray-NG source code and compile and install it. Installing software on Ubuntu should NOT be so difficult. Please, please, please can someone create a snap package.

This would be useful for students learning networking: Packet Tracer.

It wouldn’t run without libpng12-0, which isn’t in the repo. Would be useful to have it in the Snap store to download and run in a snap :+1:

Posted this idea on Cisco’s User Voice about having a Snap version of Packet Tracer

I can see realmd being incredibly useful for home, office and enterprise usage. It’s currently not available on Solus and it’d be awesome to get it setup so I don’t have to create user accounts on every single machine in the house…

Here’s the link to their site:

GitLab runner would be nice


Apparently there was an attempt at getting secure-scuttlebutt snapped upstream but the merge never happened on Github. Would anybody be able to please follow up on that as my last attempt wasn’t successful?

For the wishlist I wanted to put forward the following:

Name: Greenstone Digital Library Software
Description: Greenstone is a software suite that allows the creation of standalone digital library collections.
License: GPL v3

I would like a snap of the free and opensource Tachiomi Manga Reader

I would like to try myself but I need some documentation about creating a snap of kotlin application also it probably will need a NSFW tag for some of its plugins

+1 for MakeMKV - Anyone know the progress of this snap?
+1 for Veracrypt
+1 for Filezilla


I’m a fan of racing games and thre are 3 projects that have not a easy way to play it. This games are:
-Speed Dreams: You can only play the last version of this game compiling it:
-Vdrift: The same problem as with Speed Dreams. In addition the tracks and cars (vdrift-data) are in a separate repository and have to be added by hand…a single snap pack with all the material would make me tremendously happy.
-Racer: This is a free but not open source project. Many years ago there was a version for Linux ( V0.5.4 ), but it is very old. The most modern version (v0.9.0 RC10) has no linux support, but it is perfectly playable with Wine. Cars and Tracks must be downloaded separately. a Winepacked Snap (like Trackmania Nations Forever) with the possibility of add cars and tracks easily (/home) must be perfect.

I can’t see it in the store, @lucyllewy?

MakeMKV is in the store in the edge channel. However, the confinement is set to devmode and grade is set to devel. These settings will cause snapd to not automatically update the snap. I have not managed to get strict confinement supported yet.


I’ve got makemkv actually starting in strict confinement now, but it doesn’t see any devices (Bluray or DVD drives)
