#83

Wishes do come true! :heart_eyes: :unamused: :v: :relieved: :pensive: :ok_hand: :raised_hands:


#85

i tried (and failed) … perhaps someone else feels like rolling a combined snap with ring-daemon and gnome-ring … (involves some dbus interface tinkering)


#87

Have you done this tutorial?


#88

Opera (Developer), Geary, Gedit and Gnome Tweak Tool is what I want to have as a snap apps. Using almost all of this things every day.

Don’t ask me why ‘Gnome Tweak Tool’, it’s just additionaly, as a challenge for someone, because of security restrictions at the moment.


#90

I think I got ring working https://github.com/diddledan/ring-snap


#91

i recently tried to build it myself and while it started fine i couldnt really do anything with it after creating an account … did you actually test to make a call ?


#92

no I didn’t, I don’t have anyone to call :-p


#93

Aceplayer (acestream).

Acestream-engine etc. are outdated (still) in AUR for example, so unable to play acestream links. Could Aceplayer be brought as a Snap?

Someone speaking Spanish has made .debs downloadable from here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i7q8qh5n3ydwuc5/instalar%20para%20sistema%20de%2064%20bits.zip?dl=0

The archive extracts result to these:

libgnutls-deb0-28_3.3.15-5ubuntu2_amd64.deb
acestream-player-compat_3.0.2-1.1_amd64.deb
acestream-engine_3.0.3-0.2_amd64.deb
acestream-player-data_3.0.2-1.1_amd64.deb
acestream-player_3.0.2-1.1_amd64.deb

Found it through here, includes all instructions: https://www.htpcbeginner.com/install-acestream-on-linux-mint/

Thanks

I would like to see Firefox and Firefox Developer snapped.

Thanks

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:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGIS
That includes QGIS, Grass, Marble, gdal, Saga GIS, Orfeo toolbox and some more.


#98

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to successfully burn Windows ISOs to USB sticks.The package is not present in Ubuntu/Debian repos, and this PPA is outdated.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


#99

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


#100
$ snap find mongo|grep -c ^mongo
6

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


#101

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


#102

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


#103

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 …


#104

hi, i would like to see Qgis http://www.qgis.org/es/site/
Firefox
Ardour
Google Chrome
Onboard
and Python 3.xxx
