Edit: resolved. I decided to try mounting the 2nd drive (the “4TB drive”) on
/home/mnt in the VM. I made sure that no Snap has their
removable-media plugged in. Just as I hoped, each Snap I tested (Firefox and LibreOffice) recognized the symlinks to the directories that are in the
/home/mnt as if it belongs to the user’s home directory.
Definitely wasn’t the case when the 2nd drive was mounted on
So I’m planning on setting up 2 drives in this way
/home- 500GB SSD
- Config files, games and local software, and contain symlinks to documents, videos, etc.
/mnt- 4TB HDD
- Documents, pictures, videos, etc.
Currently trying out a setup like that in a virtual machine, but
removable-media plug needs to be connected in order to access the directory in
/mnt. Some Snap apps don’t have the
removable-media plug, so I’m just wondering if there’s a way around that?
Haven’t give this a shot yet, but will mounting it in
/home/mnt (just a random directory name) work?
