Sweethome3d could not open a .sh3d on a different partition of same disk

On my Ubuntu 18.10 Cosmic installed from Ubuntu 18.10 “Cosmic Cuttlefish” - Alpha amd64 (20180709)

I installed sweethome3d from Ubuntu Software:

corrado@corrado-p9-cc-0709:~$ snap list

sweethome3d works fine on a .sh3d on same partition but is unable to open the same .sh3d on a different partition:

corrado@corrado-p9-cc-0709:~$ ls /media/corrado/dati3/nuova1.sh3d
corrado@corrado-p9-cc-0709:~$ snap run sweethome3d-homedesign /media/corrado/dati3/nuova1.sh3d

with GIMP I had a similar problem: GIMP could not open a .xcf on a different partition of same disk

but the trick suggested for GIMP had no effect:

corrado@corrado-p9-cc-0709:~$ sudo snap connect sweethome3d-homedesign:removable-media
[sudo] password for corrado: 
error: snap "sweethome3d-homedesign" has no plug named "removable-media"

can you help me?


Thanks for reporting this issue. This interface is not declared in the snap. I’ll fix it in next release of the snap.


I added the interface and updated the snap in the edge and stable channels.

Do not hesitate to file any issue you may find. Thanks!
