Ubuntu 18.04 fresh install apparmor blocking slack, spotify and vscode

I have freshly installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. My ubuntu account is connected with ldap.
Unfortunately i cannot run any software that were installed through Programs and Applications…

I tried disabling the apparmor but I was getting:
snap-confine has elevated permissions and is not confined but should be. Refusing to continue to avoid permission escalation attacks

I tried reistalling snapd and snap-confine. nothing

I tried adding my home directory to apparmor. Nothing

 ppiegza@ENPLAP-73:~$ pwd
 /home/enp.local/ppiegza
 ppiegza@ENPLAP-73:~$ cat /etc/apparmor.d/tunables/home.d/ubuntu
 # This file is auto-generated. It is recommended you update it using:
 # $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure apparmor
 #
 # The following is a space-separated list of where additional user home
 # directories are stored, each must have a trailing '/'. Directories added
 # here are appended to @{HOMEDIRS}.  See tunables/home for details.
 @{HOMEDIRS}+=/home/enp.local/ppiegza/

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/snapd/+bug/1756793/comments/23 <- that didn’t help also.

Ok. I found out that my home dir was not properly configured.

@{HOMEDIRS}+=/home/enp.local/

this got me working! :slight_smile:
