Snap won't execute


#1

This is my first exposure to snaps. I’m looking at Neptune, a Debian-stable-based distro, and it relies on snaps for apps not in its repository.

I installed snapd (sudo apt install snapd), and installed onlyoffice from the snap store (sudo snap install onlyoffice-desktopeditors). Those were successfully completed. The onlyoffice files are there. The terminal command snap list shows core and onlyoffice-desktopeditors installed.

However, nothing showed up in the main application menu, and I can’t even launch it from the terminal by entering onlyoffice-desktopeditors, which is based on the online instructions.

How do you run snap applications after installation?

I received a reply to the issue on the Neptune forum.

  • The snap applications show up after relogin.
  • Whether the application shows up in the main menu depends on the application.
  • The terminal command is: snap run packagename
