We’re currently in a Snap workshop at the Linux App Summit and we’ve encountered a curious issue:
This package (popey will post a link later) starts just fine in Ubuntu but when ran in Fedora 31, it just refuses to do start at all.
HOWEVER, after running
snap run --gdb toggdesktop (and pressing ‘c’ a few times to get to the point where gdb prints a ton of “Detaching after fork from child process XXXX” messages), it’s possible to start the snap normally (
snap run toggldesktop).
Also, the following symlinks get created in my $HOME folder:
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 26 Nov 15 14:02 Music -> /root/../home/mbriza/Music lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 27 Nov 15 14:02 Public -> /root/../home/mbriza/Public lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 30 Nov 15 14:02 Templates -> /root/../home/mbriza/Templates
Removing them doesn’t prevent the app from starting again (until
snapd.service gets restarted).
