How do I enable/put certain unix commands into my snap? My application currently does an
lspci | grep someHardware
to determine what to do based on hardware present. I noticed it always failed, so I launched it with
snap run --shell myapp
I discovered lspci is not a valid command. How do I go about adding it to my snap?
The source code for
lspci and other utilities can be found on github. You could build that as a part. Alternatively you could
stage it from the deb in the Ubuntu archive.
$ dpkg -S `which lspci`
This tells you the
lspci command is in the
pciutils deb. So use:-
However I’m not sure it will work, as your application will be confined, and may not be able to see the PCI devices.
I followed your advice and added pciutils to stage-packages and it appears to have worked. Thanks!
